Here is my why: I get to share my passion for travel with my students by exploring new cities, towns and embarking on excursions that literally transport them mentally.

Travel challenges them to achieve things in their lives that they never dreamed possible before. I'm blessed to motivate them to immerse themselves in new cultures.

What I've discovered is that they are as excited to intrepidly take these journeys and leave their comfort zones and make their marks in the world. #EuropeanTour2019
