The Living Classroom program seeks volunteers docents who enjoy working with students and appreciate nature.
Volunteer docents lead interactive, hands-on lessons to teach students the interconnectedness of the world. The program reaches all grade levels in the Los Altos School District and includes hands-on education in science, math and social studies. The program also serves schools in the Mountain View Whisman and Palo Alto Unified school districts.
Training is available to acquaint docents with the lesson content. All materials are provided, and no teaching experience is required. A docent and often an assistant docent along with one or two volunteer parents direct lessons inside or outside the classroom.
