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 formal teaching experience is necessary, though experience with elementary aged children is a plus.
Two opportunities for Spring 2020 Volunteer Teacher Training are on:
- Monday, April 6th from 9am-3:30pm
- Tuesday, April 14th from 9am-3:30pm
Lunch and good conversation provided!
The classroom is located at 7015 Maxwelton Rd, Clinton.
The Spring activities will focus on the Forest Ecosystem. Lesson details will be shared at the trainings.
On any given teaching day, each volunteer instructor runs one particular lesson/station and will see four small groups of students as they rotate through our stations. 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 21 – June 5th, from approximately 9:00 am -1:30 pm each weekday.
