The school represents "more than just a field trip" for students enrolled, according to Kelley Pritchard, S.E.E. director/teacher.
"We have an opportunity to hike the kids around, teach them about nature and about God," she said. "We reinforce their curriculum at school. We put a hands-on approach to their book-learning. (During hikes) we can stop and say 'Hey, look at this. This is where an armadillo had burrowed a hole looking for insects.' We can let the kids experience things and then explain it to them scientifically and through our faith as well." There are currently four full-time teachers and three part-time teachers serving 54 schools totaling approximately 1,400 students. Pritchard said the support from the various schools and parent chaperones has been invaluable over the years. As long as eighth graders - current and former - speak of the cherished time they had bonding with classmates and experiencing environmental education, S.E.E. teachers will know they are on the right path, Pritchard acknowledged. "One of the most gratifying moments in my entire career in environmental education was when I was working in the garden with the students and we were talking about photosynthesis, the plant life cycle and decomposition, and a student said 'We just learned about this in school!'" she said.

Kelley Pritchard • Mentor
Fifth and sixth graders may remember Kelley as the crazy teacher at Camp Kappe who encouraged them to get as dirty as they liked in the pursuit of science, taught them songs like "Banana Slug" and "Gusano (I Am a Worm)", and rarely stopped smiling. She may also be seen as a frequent cantor at St. Matthias Catholic Church in Magnolia, and acting as Princess Anne of Cleves at the Texas Renaissance Festival. Kelley has been a teacher with the School of Environmental Education at Camp Kappe for four years, and had traveled the United States as a naturalist for three years prior to her arrival in Texas. She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Recreation Management from James Madison University in Virginia, with a minor in music that began as a major in Voice Performance. Her original career plan was to become an opera singer; this was amended when she learned that she could have a career playing outside while teaching science. Kelley's hobbies include attending as many Renaissance Faires as possible, traveling, singing and playing guitar, reading, and visiting local street fairs and farmers' markets. She's eager to contribute her skills in the outdoors, science, theater and music to the DECATS faculty as a first-year Mentor.
