Community for Schoolyard Teaching and Learning

School-based outdoor experiential education provides opportunities for both educators and students to learn and grow, with proven benefits to physical, emotional, and social health. We recognize that using schoolyards as classrooms can pose challenges. The purpose of this network is to create a community of practice within our East Tennessee region where educators and community partners can connect, share, and get excited about engaging with students in their schoolyards!

As part of this network, you will receive information about professional development opportunities, resources, and an invitation to join the meetings that take place the third Thursday of each month from 4:30–6 pm.

This community is free to join to ensure accessibility to all educators. However, facilitating such programming comes at a cost. If you are interested in supporting this effort, or collaborating with Tremont and the Knox County Health Department, please contact [email protected].
