Our Partners RAVE about Out Teach.

Every parent wants a child who’s engaged and excited at school, and every child deserves lessons that help them succeed in school and in life. We’re proud that Out Teach helps to give our teachers the training and tools they need to achieve our goals.

A student came up to me wide-eyed and excited and said, ‘I absolutely love science!’ It’s moments like those that I live for as a teacher. To be there when something clicks.

The cross-curricular applications in the outdoor classroom are wonderful, especially in Math and Science. Taking lessons outdoors and weaving them together gives them all more meaning and impact.

Out Teach organized a fantastic event for our team to work alongside students and create an outdoor classroom that they can enjoy for years to come. Many of our Team Members commented that this was the best community service event we’ve ever done, and I wholeheartedly agree.

When I have contact with the garden and get to have experiences, I learn better than when I just read about things.
