Eva Bednar

Eva joins the Homestead with diverse involvement in experiential education–from the Ossipee Mountains of New Hampshire to the plains of the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana.   She has worked with organizations in Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Montana, and Bali, Indonesia, but her first home was romping around the woods of Dingmans Ferry, PA, just across the Delaware River.

Graduating from Penn State University with degrees in Photojournalism and Integrative Arts, and minors in Environmental Inquiry and Civic and Community Engagement, she has always valued caring for people and the environment.  Eva has facilitated high and low ropes courses, sustainability education, and service immersion for hundreds of students.   Through this work she realized the true power of community, and of feeling able to be oneself within the community.

Eva is excited to bring her knowledge in outdoor education, community building, and leadership development to the Homestead School, and to facilitate discovery amongst its students.

Some of her passions include photography, teaching healthy communication skills, and traveling and exploring everywhere!

Besides being surrounded by joyous community, she is happiest with her hands in the dirt or wrapped around a camera, telling the story of the people and world around us.

I believe all children have a right to a safe and loving environment where they can feel valued for their own strengths and empowered to create the kind of world they want to live in–to envision what the world could be at its best.
