I have taught PE for 39 years at middle school & upper elementary. Outdoor Adventure education was a big part of the curriculum with archery, fishing, biking and orienteering being among the favorites. We incorporated many other components during field trips and after-school outdoor clubs. Outdoor Adventures is a great way to make meaningful connections with students and fuel their passion for the outdoors. I enjoy a wide variety of outdoor pursuits including mountain biking, hiking, and paddle boarding in the summer, as well as skiing, snowmobiling and snow shoeing in the winter. I live and recreate in Montana – one of the greatest playgrounds in the nation.
