What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I believe that it is important for children to spend as many hours outside paying and learning as possible. It is through connecting with nature that we are able to become stewards of the earth. We all benefit from feeling connected to our earth and the people who live on it. What do you love most about your job? Being outdoors in nature with children. I had one camper ask me, "Ms. April, when camp is over for the summer what are you going to do?" My response was, "Keep teaching at Camp Roots." He said, "Oh, so you don't have a job then!" Exactly right, I never feel like its a job, its a passion.

  • Shoreline School District
    Dify Fitness’s founder and head trainer Mark Haner likes to joke around, talk, sing praises of his hometown, and above all, assist kids and adults on the journey toward long-term wellness. For more than 11 years, Mark coached local teens on high-school basketball and track teams, eventually extending his fitness expertise to adults via private-training sessions, boot camps, and instructional online fitness videos. Defying the stereotypical behaviors associated with hardhearted drill-sergeant trainers, Mark’s good-natured teaching methods include constant encouragement and nutritional support, and never yelling or laughing at a toupee knocked askew during jump-rope warm-ups.

  • Best in Class Education Center
    Since 1995, Best in Class Education Center's instructors have aided students of all ages—from pre-K tots to high school seniors—in their academic journeys. They calibrate small-group and private math and English lessons that push each student at an individualized pace, helping struggling students catch up to speed or edifying advanced pupils seeking more of a challenge. The tutors give homework assignments for the kids to work on throughout the week, as well as administer weekly tests to assess their progress. In addition to boosting success in current classes, the staff helps older students ready themselves for post-secondary schooling with SAT prep classes and college admission workshops, which help applicants decide on the right place, craft an impressive personal statement, and shimmy into their dream school's mascot costume before campus visits.
