The voting phase of the Hilton HHonors Teacher Trek  travel grant competition is over.  Fifteen lucky teachers with the most public votes will have their proposals funded.  These treks will be the trip-of-a-lifetime for each teacher involved. World travel  can broaden views, break down barriers, and enrich classrooms through firsthand experiences. I am so appreciative of Hilton HHonors for supporting education generally, and cultural education specifically.  Their financial support makes these enriching experiences possible.

I am also so VERY thankful of everyone who took the time to register and to vote on my behalf. Regardless of the outcome, it has been a wonderful experience.  Equally thrilling is that being selected as a finalist by the Institute of International Education has secured a $2,500 cash award to enrich students’ experiences in my department.

Now the hard part… waiting until awards are announced May 16th!   The announcement will be made at www.hhonors.com/teachertreks
