Elementary Pet Care / Wed 3:30-4:30
All about the HUB pets!
Come have fun, make friends (humans or animals!) and get hands on opportunities with seven different species around the HUB!
Whether you already have a pet(s) or you're looking for information to help you choose the right addition, this class will benefit all ages/students. Research shows pets can do more than just bring you joy and keep you company...It suggests they can also reduce risk of asthma and allergies, decrease stress, improve heart health, and even help children with their emotional and social skills.
Using hands on activities, your student(s) will learn what it takes to care for the different pets, how to handle the animals and how to help each species thrive. Each week we will feature a different HUB species/pet.
WEEK 1 : rats
WEEK 2 : bearded dragons
WEEK 3 : guinea pigs
WEEK 4 : tortoises

I am Briana, a PNW born and raised nature enthusiast. My husband Dennis and I live here in Vancouver with our 3 young children and 22 pets. My formal education is in healthcare. I have been a CNA specializing in dementia for 10 years. I currently am the event coordinator at Kiwanis Camp Wa-Ri-Ki in Washougal, creating nature based educational events for families.
I have always enjoyed teaching and we decided to begin our homeschool journey two years ago. I really love gardening, hiking, volunteering and exploring new places with my family.
Animals have a special place in my heart, and I firmly believe when we nurture, heal and love an animal, we in turn are nurtured, healed and loved. Knowledge is power and both children and adults can learn so much from caring for an animal/pet. I am thankful and excited to be able to share my passion for animals with others, and I hope I can enrich other families' and animals' lives through my classes.
