There are few studies that have attempted to understand teachers’ perception of single-session outreach programs. More information is needed from teachers about their experiences with these programs, including how single-session outreach programs impact their classroom environments and what factors motivate teachers to invite these lessons to their classroom. This project investigated K-5th grade teachers’ perceived experience with the Partners in Education outreach lessons. The project was exploratory in nature and used a phenomenological design with open-ended interviews of seven teachers. Teachers were asked about their motivation for participating in PIE, how the lessons impacted their students, and how the lessons impacted them personally.
