Four years ago this month, I visited the monarch butterfly’s overwintering grounds in Michoacan, Mexico. Today, the same towns I visited are under attack from drug lords and gangs. It breaks my heart that travel restrictions prohibit other teachers from traveling there with the Monarch Teacher Network right now.
To celebrate the beauty and magic of that trip, I wanted to link to the posts I shared after my trip. Join me in reminiscing by reading some of my updates from the trip, linked below.
My trip to Mexico, and all of my dealings with the Monarch Teacher Network, made up some of the most powerful professional development I have ever participated in. I still act as staff at the annual summer workshops here in NJ and I hope to start traveling with some of the workshops in the next few years. Check out the website- if they are offering a workshop near you I highly recommend it.
