STEAM Gardening

Welcome to the Machan Garden! This year will be the first year, that Machan School has a garden teacher and I am very excited to teach 2nd through 5th grade in this outdoor classroom.  I am originally from Germany, where I got my masters degree in biology. In 1993 my husband and I moved to America and in 2008 to Arizona. Our 3 children attend(ed) schools in the Scottsdale Unified School District, where I started, maintained and taught in 3 school gardens. 
I believe it is very important for children to spend time outside in nature to explore, learn and have fun. 

Our classroom: Multipurpose Room C or Machan Garden
