Member Duties : Improve educational outcomes and disaster preparedness in Phoenix by joining Trees Matter to get more trees into schools while teaching staff and students the importance of trees and caring for them! The successful applicant will build resources and curriculum for the Trees for Schools Academic Program, including figuring our appropriate teaching resources to incorporate trees into STEM, art, and physical education settings. You will work with schools and other stake holders to pilot programming, gather data, and strengthen support. You will also lead in the planning of 2-7 school plantings for the year. Published research has shown that students simply having a view of a tree from their classroom measurably improves knowledge retention and resiliency.
