I wanted to make a difference in the lives of students and believe a
connection to nature and nature's teachings truly changes their lives! While I taught for over 27 years at a Community College, I wrote and
developed over 30 courses in Environmental Science, Environmental
Studies, Nature Based Learning, Stewardship, Leadership, Team Building
and Sustainability including lesson plans, guides and teaching
strategies that truly impact student learning in the classroom!
What I observed and learned while teaching Nature Based topics every day
even surprised me! The impact of these courses and topics on students'
lives was amazing! The most common statement by students was "why
didn't I learn this sooner"! Connecting students to nature and the
Earth Systems is life changing, motivates and engages students and helps
them look beyond themselves.
I am convinced that these Earth Lessons and topics should be taught
every day in every school and college in every community, state and
nation! I want to make these Nature Based Teaching lessons more
accessible to teachers and help educators learn from my experiences.
