Jaime Hutchinson

Teacher-Naturalist

Jaime Hutchinson with a froggy friend.Born and raised at the foot of Mount Greylock, Jaime has spent her professional life teaching children and working in the outdoors. In addition to her academic training at Union College and Antioch University New England, she has worked at summer camps, a children’s museum, an urban park and recreation nature center, an alternative school, and as a girl scout troop leader.

When she’s not working for the Harris Center, Jaime is honing her skills by teaching her husband and two children how to identify frog calls, track animals in the snow, and use worms to make compost. Her husband says, “Of course we have a jar of moose poop on the kitchen table, a stuffed skunk in the trunk, and a frozen bat in the freezer; that’s life with a naturalist!”
