We are now looking for creative and passionate individuals to build our Rewilding School family.

Kids need dirt time. Imagine your lesson plans driven by your students’ interests, not by a rigid curriculum. Imagine that you are able to support kids through challenging times and help them grow as human beings. Imagine that your school has no screens, no pens, no paper, that your school isn’t a school at all- but instead school is the streams, fields, and forests of our local outdoor places.

Part Time Year Round Educator
