What teachers are saying…. 

“I am happy to recommend your classes. They are great. You put so much energy into them and that comes across. I took the Teaching in the Dirt: Becoming A Natural Teacher & Teaching in the Dirt: STEAM Outdoors. I love this quickie Exploring Nature in Winter too. My co-teacher keeps asking where I am getting my inspiration for the winter ideas. YOU!” Anne
