Dirty Hands, Happy Hearts

By Teacher Selly

In our classrooms, we trade smart boards for the wonders of nature. No screens here, just a refreshing river in our garden where children escape the heat, feeling the breeze among the treetops, running barefoot after dragonflies, and befriending grasshoppers, lizards, and millipedes.

Rather than imposing bans, we guide them on dangers and self-protection, nurturing respect for other beings' lives. We celebrate the joy of getting dirty, believing that dirt on hands, feet, and clothes may do more good than harm. Why fuss over neatness? Clothes can be washed, but the daily experiences, the things they touch, and feel stay with them, molding them into nature-connected adults. Welcome to a classroom where learning is an adventure with the world around us!
