Volunteer Teachers Needed at the Outdoor Classroom!

Share your love of the environment! Outdoor Classroom Volunteer Teachers Needed

Volunteers provide school aged children in our community memorable half-day nature experiences at the Maxwelton Outdoor Classroom.

Join the talented crew of Outdoor Classroom volunteer teachers and help make these rich experiences happen. Whidbey Watershed Stewards staff provide the lesson plans, training, and all the tools you need to be successful! No experience is necessary.

Two opportunities for Spring 2019 Volunteer Teacher Training are on:

  • Monday, April 8th – 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
  • Thursday, April 11th – 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Lunch and good conversation provided!

At the training we will do the activities together, get a chance to explore the facility and have the chance to catch up and get to know each other. The training will start at  9:00 am  and wrap up by 2:00 pm with lunch provided. You will be given a printed packet of lessons to take with you.
We will also dedicate the first few days of the season to observation days giving you the chance to see the lessons taught. Amy is working out the schedule with visiting classes and will get those dates to you as soon as they are set.

The classroom is located at 7015 Maxwelton Rd, Clinton. 

DETAILS:

The spring activities will focus on birds and the ecosystem. Lesson details will be shared at the trainings.

As a volunteer you run a particular lesson/station and see four different groups of students at your station. Students come in classes so one day you might work with first grades and another day 5th grades. You choose the lesson you would like to lead, the age group and the dates that work for you. It is helpful to volunteer for one teaching day per week, or more if available.

The spring season will run from April 23rd – June 7th, Tuesday-Friday, from approximately 9:30 am -1:15 pm each day.
