Outdoors with teachers Yadaa.at Kalé means beautifully adorned face, of slopes rising northeast from the highschool named for them (JDH).…
Resources for our downtown high school
Oct-17th Rather belatedly, I’m adding a page for beautifully-adorned face (JDH), on the occasion of STEAM-2022, the 3-day gathering of educators from Áak’w & T’aakú Aaní and beyond. Steve Merli and I, with guidance from his wife Pam, a conference organizer, added some fresh-air components to the dozens of lectures and breakout-sessions.
I live about 4 raven-flaps uphill from Yadaa.at Kalé, so beautiful face is my playground and laboratory. There is so much potential for outdoor education from this and sister-schools, arrayed side-by-side toward Dzanti-Sayéik bridge, in background of this aerial.
To downtown teachers: with, say, 20-or-30-minutes’ heads-up, I could probably meet you and your class on the way past my street to Flume Trail or Brave Outlier. Extra points for weather-window-watchers and spontaneity! I spend way too much time in front of this computer and would be grateful to be yanked out the door on your tree-hugging or goating adventure.
