Being a Nat Geo Educator has given me a new set of tools that allow my students to engage with the world and develop global competence. On 9/28/18, I had the privilege of being on the summit of Mt. Taylor, NM, to see the sunrise with a group of 25 students. We were on trek with the Cottonwood Gulch as part of the Students in Wilderness Initiative while our other group of 25 eighth graders was up in northwest NM exploring the Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness Study Area. Camping and hiking out in wilderness areas with our students as Explorers has been a dream come true and we’re looking forward to our upcoming day trips this winter and our multi-day backpacking trip in the spring.
Teacher friends, I encourage you to explore becoming a Nat Geo Certified teacher. You never know where the experience might take you and your students! @insidenatgeo #natgeocertified @natgeoeducation @cottonwoodgulch
