"Thanks for the welcome, Amy! :)
Letterboxing is awesome.Had done an online search for a place to hike in a local state park and found a "clue"instead.....It's like a secret society.So much fun!
MTN is a wonderful group of teachers…"

Greetings and Welcome, Hope. Rich has asked me to help organize the Natural Teachers Network. Amy and I and others are busy getting the initial infrastructure in place. After that is done, I hope you will help in spreading the word about the group, which will have a special site on C&NN CONNECT. I know about MTN from Diane Genco, ED of the New Jersey School-Age Care Coalition. Diane and I and others are working together to bring the children and nature story to the after-school community. Back soon with more details on the Natural Teachers Network. Welcome aboard. jt
re:MTN -- this network is open to all -- so feel free to invite others. We're working on a new initiative -- a Natural Teachers Network for teachers who use the out-of-doors in their teaching -- inclusive of all subjects from language arts, math, leadership, to history, social studies etc. etc.
