The BIG Lesson Team
Together with teachers and community experts, we work to make The BIG Lesson week a powerful learning experience for everyone involved. We're excited to connect with you!
Founder and Program Director
Margaret Holtschlag teams up with Michigan's Capital Area teachers and community places for place-based learning and stewardship. Margaret is founder and director of the BIG Lesson Programs (history, zoo, nature, science), and was Michigan Teacher of the Year 2000.
The integral work of The BIG Lesson is possible through the dedication and overall phenomenal-ness of a group of retired, now ReWired, teachers. They provide a wealth of experience and knowledge about teaching and the natural world.
