Heather Ridge

Heather (Riffel) Ridge sees the world as her classroom.

She has spent the last few decades getting her best lessons from trotting the globe and meeting the people, places, plants and practices that make it a better place on which to spin. These experiences have been vital in creating rich, engaging material for her actual classrooms in Boulder Valley School District and Front Range Community College.

As a freelance writer, she has previously been published in educational and scientific texts as well as travel, gardening, food and lifestyle magazines.   She is currently working on a book about vocational training and its impact on global communities in the 21st century.
