Naturally Teaching Button

Naturally Teaching is a blog written by me, Victoria, a certified teacher working at a nature center and mother to a beautiful little girl. Being an integrated science major, I have chosen “naturally teaching” as the name for this blog simply for its dual meaning. First, I am enthusiastic about teaching and parenting using nature and its elements to enhance learning. Second, I teach the way that feels most natural to me; both very creative and sometimes sarcastic, but always sticking to the facts.

Life as a Single Parent

Sticking with the theme of duality, this blog serves two main purposes. On one hand this blog serves as a resource to teachers and students aspiring to become teachers. On the other hand this blog serves as a resource to parents who are teachers in their own rights. As a certified teacher and mother, I know that my educational background influences the way that I parent.

Either way, love or hate it, this blog will hit on topics in parenting, education, ideas for the classroom, lesson plans, free printables, how tos, and more. Please feel free to comment and tell me how this blog has inspired you to go outside with your children and get creative with your lesson plans and everyday activities!


  1. Hi there,

    I found your blog after one of my friends shared it with me on Facebook and wanted to run a few things by you. I’m working on a home education project, and I think it’s something you could definitely relate to. Let me know if you have a moment to discuss.



  2. Hi Melissa!
    I too am a mother and a certified teacher, and got my bachelor’s degree in Environmental and Forest Biology! Since my oldest was born I have been a Stay-at-home-mom. LOVE what you’re doing here and looking forward to looking into it more as Spring is here and I can’t wait to get my girls back outside! I recently began working with an amazing organic health and wellness company and am particularly passionate about their Million Mom Movement. You embody so much of what this mission is about and would love to share more with you!
