Review for Canopy, Palo Alto,, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm an elementary science teacher, and was fortunate to meet Vanessa Wyns in person last school year. We had planned for an in-person lesson with my 4th graders, but unfortunately schools were closed before that was possible. I was incredibly impressed with how Vanessa was able to turn that in-person lesson into an asynchronous one. My students really enjoyed it and learned a lot.
Recently she taught the Tree to Table lesson live with my 4th graders over Zoom. Again, the materials were excellent, and all of my students learned a great deal and were inspired to learn more. Vanessa has such a natural rapport with students, engaging them and making them feel comfortable sharing. They all want her to come back and visit them again!
I'm truly grateful for this amazing organization. The work that they do is inspiring and so very necessary for our students' future.
