Alaska Is...

       hard to capture in words. I guess, in simplest terms, it is Mother Nature in all her splendor…at her finest!

Final Reflections

        The last day of this trip is a strange one for me. It is a day filled with emotions that are hard to express. This is my second trip to Alaska and both times have been extremely special. They have helped me to grow as a person and leader. In fact, this trip was what made me decide teaching was the career for me. You really couldn’t ask for a finer group of kids or adults. Watching each person evolve throughout this trip is something I enjoy very much. I have made some very special connections this year that will stay with me forever. Thank you all for a great trip, it hurts a little for it to be over, but the memories and relationships are timeless.
