I'm a fifth grade teacher, a romance novelist, and an environmentalist. I believe the best thing we can do for the youth of our planet is get them connected to nature. It upsets me that I can go for a walk in my neighborhood right after school lets out and not see a single child playing outside. I remember my mother having to almost send a search party out to get my brother and I to come back into the house.
Hi Christine! I recognize you. Welcome to C&NN. Glad you made it here and found the Natural Teachers Network. A lot of us have the same kinds of memories from childhood and want to make sure the next generation can have them, too. I hope you find resources and camaraderie here and that we see a lot of you around the forum.
