Participants will walk away from each session with ready-to-use student activities focusing on the foundations of sustainability.

Sign up for one, two, or all three sessions today!

Session 1: Sustainability through the Environment with Ellisha Newton

Tuesday, November 10th

The Children’s Environmental Literacy Foundation (CELF) will launch the Teachers Environmental Literacy Series (TELS), a virtual opportunity for teachers to join a national professional learning community (PLC) which fosters collaborative learning among fellow teachers within K-12 education. This semester’s series will focus on teaching tools geared towards the 3Es of sustainability: environment, economic, and equity.

Session 1 will present teachers with environment-themed student activities – which can be implemented online or in-person – along with best teaching practices for an interdisciplinary audience. For the inaugural series, CELF has the privilege of presenting master teacher Ellisha Newton to share her teaching journey along with impactful teaching tips to improve student inquiry. Click here to register!

Past CELF Participant Testimonials


Rooting my classroom in education for sustainability has changed my view of teaching and my students’ views on learning in school. They are more enthusiastic than ever, as we explore nature, outdoor classroom settings, field research, service learning activities, and a myriad of other activities that I learned from my time with CELF.
