Outdoor Classrooms Training and Development Programs

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”  Ben Franklin

Outdoor Classrooms inspire early childhood teachers, out-of-school-time educators; along with, parents and families to create one-of-a-kind Outdoor Classrooms and/or Backyard Teaching Gardens. All on a shoe-string budget. One way we do this is through workshops and training.

All workshops and training are led by Victoria Hackett, M.Ed.  Whether your workshop is online or onsite, Victoria blends theory with hands-on problem-solving techniques, true-to-life anecdotes, valuable tips, and lively participation. Her extensive experience as a consultant/trainer/mentor and her background as a Natural Teacher allows her to bring profound knowledge and a pragmatic approach to every workshop she teaches. Whatever your training and development needs may be, Victoria is ready to work with you to provide training, facilitation, and consultation in a variety of outdoor learning areas.
