Dear_____,

I’m sure you’ve heard, but teachers across the country are under incredible pressure right now, and many have left the profession during the pandemic.

I can name at least three incredible teachers that have had such an impact on my life. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without those special individuals, and you probably have a few too.  Everyone remembers THAT teacher, the one that sparked inspiration, and challenged you to learn in an exciting new way.

So, to honor all the teachers that have made a difference in my life and yours, I’m working with Out Teach (out-teach.org), a nonprofit that trains teachers to use schools’ outdoor spaces to give students exciting hands-on learning experiences (particularly in Science). They also build Outdoor Learning Labs for under-resourced schools so that ALL teachers can easily take their students outside for engaging real-world learning.

Teachers give their students 100% every day, so for “Teacher Appreciation Week” I’ve teamed up with other donors across the country to provide 100 teacher training scholarships, so that every teacher can be THAT teacher, taking students outdoors and making learning more effective, exciting, and joyful for everyone.

Please join me in giving what you can to get students outdoors for active hands-on learning next year. Visit https://www.out-teach.org/donate/ and give your gift today!

Sincerely,

Out Teach, formerly REAL School Gardens, provides professional development for elementary school teachers. Out Teach prepares them to use school gardens, outdoor classrooms, and green schoolyards to improve instruction through three-dimensional project-based learning, and outdoor experiential inquiry-based education. Professional learning with Out Teach improves hands-on science and STEM education through instructional coaching and digital education resources and improves 21st Century skills.
