Art teacher/world traveller needs help.
Mon, 14 Apr 1997 13:32:27 -0500
I teach art in grades 1-5 in the Greenway Schools, Coleraine, Mn. Vandyke
has established itself as an Environmental Learning Center. This year we were
honored with the Mn. Elementary School Principals Association's, School of
Excellence, only one of six in the state.
Last year I travelled to New Zealand, this year I do a two week treck around
Lake Superior with the Lake Superior Learning Center, Duluth, with members
from 12 schools from Mn., Wi. and Canada. Also I plan on attending the
National Wildlife Federation Summit in Seward, Alaska to study and learn how
to integrate EE studies into existing curriculums.
The Alaska trip will be funded only partially by my district (very little)
the rest is up to me. Resently,I approached numerous local and some national
environmental organizations and companies. Haven't heard anything yet
If anyone has a contact in Seward to help me with lodging...it would be a
great help. It will be the hight of the tourist season...and very expensive.
Any ideas of funding possibilities...inform back.
