That’s "Mr. Campbell"

I’ve taken a new job recently, back to teaching school. It’s a little different than the teaching I’ve done before, in that each of my classes takes place outside, at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma. Outdoor education, taught in the outdoors. Quite a concept.
I’m working at SAMI (Science and Math Institute), a specialized high school in the Tacoma School District, that utilizes the resources of nearby Point Defiance Park as its classroom. The school itself is a collection of temporary buildings just outside the main park entrance, and although some classes are taught here, most of the curriculum is based around the park’s different environments, including the Point Defiance Zoo.
It’s a great idea and I’m happy to be a part of it – a pretty small part of it, to be sure, but a part of it all the same. I see a real opportunity here and it’s given me a new perspective on how to use some of the learning that I have accumulated as well.
More on this as it develops.
