‘‘Let nature be your teacher.’’
- William Wordsworth


Welcome! I’m Calum, and this is my blog, Fresh Air Teacher.

I have had the privilege of working as a primary education teacher for a number of years in different countries and contexts. After completing an MSc in Outdoor Education in 2021, I was given the fantastic opportunity to work as an Outdoor Learning Specialist within an urban international school organisation in the Netherlands.

Fresh Air Teacher documents my journey of discovery with outdoor learning in primary education. I want to help primary educators to develop their own outdoor learning practices by sharing my reflections and experiences and offering different tried and tested ideas linked with curriculum, sustainability education, life skills and classroom learning.

I think it’s important to create greater opportunities for primary school children to learn and discover in outdoor environments, be creative, and develop their love for the natural world, and I hope I can help do that here.
