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

Hi Victoria,
Spring is upon us, but I have learned so much from your winter activities and I am actually looking forward to next winter when I can use them with the children! Some of them are great spring activities, and when we come back from spring break we are going to work on the mandalas. I will post pictures of them when we finish, I am excited to try them and I am hoping there will be more sprouting flowers by that point to incorporate in them.
Thank you so much!
Ingrid
