Beginning each day outdoors allows children to explore their inner dialogue and their sense of wonder in a peaceful environment. We as teachers have that moment for quiet conversation, sharing in their learning and making connections to our students passions. Taking outdoor education from Kindergarten to Grade 7 instills an authentic connection to the environment.
My teaching has been focused on Outdoor Kindergarten and Outdoor education in the intermediate grades. This combined with my degree in Landscape Architecture has helped me develop learning spaces that facilitate student engagement and outdoor exploration.
