The Galapagos, Paris, Ireland, Budapest, New York City and D.C. – last summer, Sahuaro students had three choices of tour traveling.  Educational travel tours connect teachers and students to cultures, languages, and people.  English teacher, Ms. Lange; French teacher. Mdm Kelly, and Drama teacher, Ms Rossmeissl all led student trips this year. Last year Sahuaro student Megan Rasey went to New York City, and stated. “I loved my trip to New York and Washington D.C. It gave me the greatest opportunity to see very historical parts of this country. This experience really inspired me to start traveling more! I will never forget this trip!” Ms. Lange (English teacher) is holding a meeting August 28 in room 207. This summer she will be going to Italy and Greece with a three-day island cruise. She usually takes about 20 people at most, so it’s first come first serve. This trip is not TUSD funded. It will be Ms. Langes’ 10th year doing an educational trip.  She has taken students to Australia, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland and so much more.

Ms. Lange, who took a group of 28 to Ecuador and the Galapagos along with Mr. Chandler, Ms. Martinez, and Mrs. Bouchard last June says, “I like to do educational trips because I want to give students wander lust, and I love seeing how excited they are visiting new places.” Everyone had a good laugh at her expense when she got a little too close to a sea lion after their snorkeling adventure.  “It made a horrible noise and lunged for me.  Came really close to taking out my elbow!” she laughed.

Ms. Rossmeissl, who took her dozen students to London, Ireland, and Paris says, “I like to travel with students because I love to see the look on students’ faces when they see something new or something that they’ve simply never seen before.” And Madame Kelly says, “I think traveling is the best way to learn about the world because it opens up new points of view and shows them what the world is really like. It also helps them experience and understand the world.” and “I love taking students on trips because it enriches their way of learning and its good for students to learn about the world and it shows them other cultures and new life styles.”

So how do these three pick their next destination?  Lange says, “I usually pick from my bucket list, and sometimes I re-do trips that I just loved. For example, 2019’s trip is Italy and Greece with a 3-day island cruise.  I spent my summers growing up in Rome. It’s a pleasure for me to share this beautiful ancient city with students.  And no other trip can beat that Greek island cruise.  Mykonos and Santorini are breathtaking.” She and Mr. Chandler, history teacher, will hold an informational meeting for parents on Tuesday, August 28 at 6pm in room 207 that will cover the itinerary, what’s included and the price for their tour.

Madame Kelly’s Trip to Central Europe

Madame Kelly has been doing educational trips for at least 10 years.  Last year she went to Central Europe and said she enjoyed the trip very much.  Madame Kelly has been thinking about doing a trip to Japan, but she will provide details once she makes her final decision. She can be found in room 127 for further information. Ms. Rossmeissl will be doing an educational trip to New York in the summer of 2020. The meeting will be held some time in September in the Little Theater (orchestra building), she is not exactly sure what day.  She prefers to do trips every other year.

All of these trips are unforgettable memories that last a lifetime for anyone. If you are interested listen closely to the morning announcements. Its already for sure that Ms. Lange’s meeting is on August 28th, however of you are interested in other trips more dates are coming up along with more information.
