Yellowstone, here we come…

June 14, 2016

Students are gone, grades are in, classrooms are cleaned up – school just finished a few days ago for most of the group. And tomorrow, each of us will have the opportunity to leave the bustle of everyday life behind and step into a completely different environment. Before dawn, we’ll gather at the Raleigh-Durham airport and board a plane bound for Montana. Before the sun sets at 9:11 pm Mountain Time, we will be in Yellowstone, America’s first national park. It’s an opportunity to take a deep breath, both literally and figuratively, and recharge our educator batteries. It’s a chance to gather first hand knowledge to bring back and share with North Carolina students. We can’t wait to get there!

The group is excited about many things – observing wildlife in its natural habitat, hearing the rumble of a geyser as it erupts, absorbing scenic mountain vistas, and discovering lots of new ideas and information to bring home! Here’s a few pictures from previous trips to whet your appetite…

We hope you’ll follow along as the 2016 group shares their adventures (whenever internet access cooperates). If you have a question you’d like us to answer about our experiences in Yellowstone, post it as a comment and we’ll do our best to reply with an answer!

    To such great teachers! Thank you for the teachers you are and to be chosen for such an experience. When teachers are given great resources to learn from and bring it back home for our children to learn from makes me less worried about a testing world
