Here's what others are saying about our programs
You did such a great job with our kids! You had the energy to keep their attention, plus you came up with little ways to keep them engaged. You kept all of the terminology on their level, and the teachers were totally thrilled with your presentation. We are looking forward to meeting with you again soon!

I was so pleased to be able to observe your dynamic lesson on the Rain Forest. The students were having a blast with your activities and we were ALL – students and staff – constantly looking at each other mouthing the words, “I did NOT know that!” You demonstrated the VERY BEST in after school programming practice – it was fun! You were so enthusiastic! And everyone learned a ton of information about the rain forest.

Your presentation was fantastic!
- Mrs. Magana - Principal Walt Disney Elementary School

We had discussed how chocolate grows on trees, but it was a different experience for them to actually see the cocoa bean. They were also able to see fun and unusual animals in their natural habitat. For example, we've read a lot of stories about monkeys, but they've never seen one in its natural environment. This was a great opportunity for my students. Peter kept them engaged and the program was developmentally appropriate for them. A lot of my students come from low income families and will probably never have the opportunity to experience a trip to the zoo. This is a way for them to do that. I would love to do another e-field trip. Thank-you!
