We bring the Outdoors Indoors!
Teachers of Nature supports teachers' virtual learning needs, parents as teachers, librarians, scouts and more, by providing a learning platform for curious learners with a focus on nature. Teachers of Nature supports instructors who are professionals in their field with experience and knowledge about nature and wildlife. Each instructor's profile has a slide show of specialized classes that they teach as a quick reference to help you find the perfect class that fits your needs and curiosity.
We partner with an accredited science teacher that offers science-based earth and animal classes and a college professor that can tutor and teach classes on anything related to biology. We also have professional instructors that can advise on best practices care for your reptiles, birds and other pets and can even assist in the training of animals. Learn from professionals who have spent their lives raising and learning about animals.
If you don't see a class that fits your needs, please send us an email with a special request. We also have referrals and connections across the US for in-person and virtual animal and nature classes. We are here to bring the outdoors indoors and bring more appreciation of nature into your lives.
Meet Dr. Allison!
This is the first time Dr. Allison has used her "title" outside teaching college, but she decided its important for kids - especially girls - to meet women who have earned PhDs - and to know that you can earn a PhD and still work with animals! Dr. Allison isn't a medical doctor, she's the type of doctor that does scientific research.
Marine mammals are Dr. Allison's favorite, and right now she works with and researches seals, sea lions and beluga whales. But she's worked at lots of places and studied lots of different animals and is super excited to teach you about them. Dr. Allison has two boys, two dogs, three rats, and an African Grey Parrot. Her Best Friend, Dr. Genet, is an entomologist (a scientist who studies insects) who often drops in on class!
Meet Cindi Cavallini!
Cindi has been doing educational wildlife presentations for almost 30 years. She runs an outreach program called All About Animals, where she brings her own animals to in-person presentations to teach people more about Animals and their lives. Cindi has a variety of animals that help to get children excited and wanting to learn more about science and nature, and the world around us.
Cindi believes that meeting and understanding more about animals helps children to appreciate and respect them, as well as teach them empathy towards other living creatures, and the natural world.
Meet Jason Clevett!
