"My Passions Empower Possibilities!”

With a background that began with special needs behaviorally challenged children, I found success through active play and behavior modification. I take my love of physical fitness and the outdoors and bring that openness to children. I continue to pursue the following passions: yoga, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, swimming, hiking, snowboarding, skiing, cycling, and active meditation. Bringing and sharing these passions with children has been the greatest gift!

Hollie Helman

Founder Barefoot Adventures

My career in education started over 20 years ago when I obtained my teaching certificate in Elementary and Special Education. I then moved to New York City and began my teaching career. At the same time working towards a Masters Degree in Reading and Literacy from Bankstreet College. Throughout my career, I have had the honor of teaching in a variety of classrooms ranging from Kindergarten to High School. I had my own private practice working with students on specific study skills, organizational skills, as well as helping students to be more confident readers and writers. Currently I am a full-time Reading Specialist working with children ranging from 3rd grade to 5th grade. For me teaching has always been about helping my students have that light bulb moment. Seeing possibility for themselves and not being afraid to take a risk.
