Upcoming:June 2018 Study Tour to Peru: Application materials in Fall, 2017
2017 Participant Melissa West has the below to say about the study tour Her full report is found here.
"GEEA’s teacher study tour to Peru was truly an unforgettable, life-changing experience. One of the greatest gifts we can give our students is fostering their curiosity about the world around them, and encouraging them to feel empowered in solving global issues. And while it is one thing to read about countries like Peru in books, see pictures of places like Machu Picchu, it is an entirely different thing to run your hands along the un-mortared stone walls of Incan ruins, enjoy impromptu salsa dancing in the park, try the delicacies of anticuchos and Suspiro de Limena, and struggle for breath while taking in the beautiful views of the centuries-old city of Cusco. Along with these astounding historical and cultural experiences was an otherwise impossible opportunity to observe Peruvian classrooms and interact with their students and teachers. This trip has not only allowed me to grow as an educator, both professionally and academically, but it has also inspired personal endeavors. I hope GEEA continues to support teacher study programs such as this, further fostering global partnerships in our classrooms and inspiring our students to experience the world for themselves as well.
