I have been waiting on an ecredit to be applied to my daughter's trip account. It should have posted by Dec. 15th. I can not get through to anyone at customer service after many hours on hold at various times of day. Please reach out so we can get this matter taken care of. We have had several communications on this matter. Thank you.
I have been trying to get my refund for a trip that was cancelled due to COVID and after months of no responses now they called me abs want to charge me a fee. Making money off of this pandemic is disgusting and offensive and this company is a scam!!! Explorica Educational Travel

Today's the last day to enter our giveaway! We know how much work our teachers have put in this year, that's why one lucky teacher will receive two round-trip domestic airline tickets to celebrate! ✈️ 🎉

🍎 Enter here: https://bit.ly/3FggSMp

Photo 1: "After our Peach Bowl performance was canceled in December, Mr. Kyle put in all of his time and effort to take the Kelly Hawks band on another adventure. Going through all of the difficult hoops he was able to take us somewhere new. He practiced with us, solicited the funds to purchase brand new uniforms, and even tackled the Pantheon with us at Busch Gardens. Mr. Kyle is one of a kind, not only is he someone to talk to on a bad day, but our dance partner, our fellow selfie taker, and most of all the best band director." -Tabitha B.
Photo 2: "My teacher is one of the best because he helped our band make the best of his final year teaching and took us to New Orleans. Not only did we go to New Orleans but we also got the opportunity to play in the 2021 Sugar Bowl." -Kamonie F.
Photo 3: "Ms. DeHart is the best teacher I've had in my 13 years in school. I was never interested in history or politics before having her as my World History teacher sophomore year. She always had us making connections between the past and present, which, for me, brought history to life. She is also an Art History teacher and was able to give us an excellent tour of the Louvre while we were in Paris. She is the reason I love history so much and the reason I will be pursuing a degree and a career in politics. -Jamie L.

"Many of us remember our favorite teachers — the ones who instilled confidence in us, who encouraged us to dream boldly, and who helped us believe that we could achieve anything." -Joe Biden.

Photo 1: "When we stopped in Alabama, on our way to New Orleans, my group of friends and my band director, got matching shirts from Walmart! We all matched at our band’s private dinner! It was a night full of dancing and fun!" -Victoria S.
Photo 2: "Ms. Kunkle has a unique sense of humor and and super fun when we go on historical adventures!" -Lilian P.
Photo 3: "Everyday Mr. Haro gives his all (because he's that extra) - from his driven passion of choral music and sharing the wonders of jazz chords, to his very aesthetic choir room with photos of past choirs and posters of musicians. His philosophy is, "everything we do, we do together," he always puts the wellbeing of his students first. He's special in the way he's himself - he loves Star Wars, 2000s boy bands, is a plant dad and won't be afraid to embarrass himself. Choir is my family because of him and I couldn't ask for a better choir teacher." -Crishelle B.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Day! 🎉
We want to thank all of our Nation's educators who touch the lives of students everyday.
Photo 1: "This is my cheer coach Jenn. She is amazing and always there for us. She is always down to put up with our crazy and she is willing to do it with us. Her door is always open on campus for us if we need to talk, need a break, have a question, want to say hi, or if we want a snack." -Kymberly C.
Photo 2: "Mrs.Brown took on so much responsibility with watching the kids that didn’t have a guardian come with them, she watched over them like her own child. I sat beside her on the plane on the way to NYC and on the way back. She made sure every one of us were comfortable, always making sure to meet our needs if we needed something. If one of us were too shy to speak up to ask the course leader something or point something out she’d speak up for them and give the credit. She is awesome!" -Hanna E.
Photo 3: "Coach Ty was PHENOMENAL. I’ve never learned so much from an individual person in my life. She has been the most wise and inspiring person I’ve met. She is the reason I am a leader today! I’m looking forward to changing the world with my leadership knowledge greatly impacted by Coach Ty." -Luke S.
Photo 4: "In this picture are two amazing teachers, Sr. Borba and Sra. Mejía with a breathtaking background of Costa Rica. Both teachers have helped develop and made me successful with the language of Spanish and the culture development of each and every beautiful Spanish speaking country in which I will never forget." -Andrew G.

In honor of , all week we'll be shouting out some of our amazing teachers that go above and beyond for their students.

Here's how great your students think you are!
Photo 1: "Ms. Davis exudes just being a teacher! This is her third time traveling to Italy, and she could not have made it a better trip for me. Before travel, she made sure I was prepared to pack all the necessities and even gave good tips to make everything easier. One of the many group pictures we took, this one is my favorite in front of the Roman Colosseum. I can’t wait to take on another trip with her!" -Karlyn G.
Photo 2: "My teacher is the best because she understands us middle schoolers. This isn’t just because she is my mom (though she is the coolest mom). She allows us to participate in fun activities and also gave us the chance to go to Washington D.C. with WorldStrides! When I went, I had the best time. I went to several places with her on this trip and it made me happy going to our country’s capitol with the happiest person I know." -Riley S.
Photo 3: "She isn’t my teacher technically but she is an elementary teacher and teaches volleyball. She is the JV coach and she always pushes me to do my best. She is there for me whenever it is needed and is like a second mom. She is so joyful and happy it’s contagious! I love her!" -Wyntr M.
