One Last Thing Before I Go

It’s not every day that I get publicly serenaded (traffic noise and winter coughs and all), but when I do it’s by my school’s choir on the last school day before my expedition. Indeed, all of my bags are (finally) packed and I’m (anxiously) ready to go.

But before I do, I simply had to take one last opportunity to stop by this old blog to say thank you.

Thank you, first and always, to National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions for believing in me and giving me this amazing opportunity. I am humbled and overjoyed to have been selected for this program, and I know that I will never truly be able to repay this generosity, but I will work hard to do so.

Thank you, thank you to my sweet friends and family who have all along been my cheerleaders since I entered this crazy world of teaching. Thanks for reading these posts and “liking” all of my excessive Antarctica conversations, both in real life and on social media.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to my amazing school community who have rallied around me since this big announcement. To my principal for pulling every possible string to financially cover my leave of absence, to my colleagues for taking care of my sweet kids while I’m away, to my students’ families for their generosity of gifts and and hugs and warm thoughts. I am so lucky.

I hope you’ll all keep checking in with me while I’m away and as I process this experience when I return. The countdown will soon end but the learning will not.

Waddle on, everybody.
