Cottage Lane Elementary School Technology teacher Jacob Tanenbaum reflects on lessons learned over a decade of coordinating the school’s annual Earth Day in the latest issue of “The Earth Scientist,” a peer reviewed science education journal published by The National Earth Science Teachers Association. Tanenbaum presents CLE’s event, which relies on extensive collaboration with partners at Tallman Mountain State Park, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, and other local organizations, as an affordable outdoor education day model for schools.

The story is also featured on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) website, as Tanenbaum helps run the NOAA Planet Stewards book club for educators. Congratulations, Mr. Tanenbaum!
