Stories

Britney Brintzenhoff was ecstatic when she saw a job posting for site supervisor at SEEDS EcoSchool in Kalkaska Upper Elementary. She was happy about the opportunity to work with kids as a step towards her goal of becoming a teacher. She was thrilled for the chance to go back to SEEDS, because she had been a SEEDS kid herself.
