We are the lucky crew who accompany these amazing students on a life-changing adventure to Costa Rica. As educators in the classroom, we know the value of learning about the world, but as educators in the field we get to see students making profound discoveries about our world firsthand. This trip’s effects are long lasting and far reaching: Our students grow socially, emotionally, and academically. We cannot express how fortunate we feel to be able to spend this kind of quality time with our students, helping them discover, explore, and expand their strengths and passions. This is the kind of life-long learning we hope to model and inspire in our students.
