Watershed for Every Classroom
“This was such an awesome course! I would highly recommend anyone and everyone to participate!”
– Chris Murphy
“Experiencing all of the trips and conference topics first-hand prepared me very well to do the same at our school.”
“This experience has been the best professional development I have had the privilege of taking. Thank you for the year-long inspiration and reminder of all the reasons that drew me into education in the first place.”
– Devon Morrill
“Field-based experiences were really fantastic and gave me lots of ideas of activities and lessons I could do with my students.”
“Amazing resources helped me see the ‘do-ability’ of student-led projects and citizen science.”
“It was really cool to meet all of the great teachers, especially being a young teacher still developing ideas.”
“Networking, field-based experiences, and area experts - connections which are all vital to powerful, place-based education.”
“Feedback was timely, expectations were clear, support was incredible!”
