I had the opportunity to visit Switzerland on this trip. I had never been before and had such an amazing time! Over 3 days I went white water rafting (level 3-4 rapids), did a ropes course with ziplining, and overcame my fear of heights by paragliding off the Swiss Alps.
I was not going to do all of these adventurous things that scared me but I remembered telling all of my students to try new things and to CARPE DIEM so I had to take my own advice. I am so glad that I did because I had an amazing time! I hope you all get the chance to try these things one day!
received a FFT (Fund for Teachers) Grant to travel to Pompeii to create a virtual field trip for her students. Once they "visit" Pompeii, they will use Minecraft EDU to recreate the ancient city. Using STEAM principles, they will redesign the city better withstand natural disasters such as earthquakes and volcanoes.
