To all the teachers in our Out Teach community, THANK YOU for going above and beyond every day to make learning meaningful and fun. We appreciate you, and we are inspired by you. This year, in particular, you’ve worked so hard to provide students with something to look forward to every day, and provided a way to connect with their peers, their school communities, and their futures.  Your commitment to children’s outdoor explorations and hands-on learning has added a bright spot to every day, and they will continue to build on the curiosity you’ve cultivated for the rest of their lives.

Thank you for all that you do.
