This is my last post at the 2014 Iditarod Teacher on the Trail. Today I’m headed back to Alaska for the Summer Camp for Teachers. I’ve got a last few bucket items I will check off my list on this trip – visiting the Seavey kennel in Seward, visiting Jeff King’s kennel and horseback riding in Denali, visiting Kenai Fjords National Park, meeting Denali’s sled dogs, sightseeing in Fairbanks, and flying over the Arctic Circle. But, I know the highlight will be talking Iditarod with a whole new group of teachers at the conference!
As a part of the conference, at the Volunteer Picnic, I will officially turn over the sleeping bag to Erin Montgomery. She’ll be taking over the blog in the next week or so. I had a chance to get to know Erin at last year’s Summer Camp. She is a middle school teacher from Iowa. She’s in for an amazing journey, and the best part? We all get to go along for the ride! I’m expecting wonderful things from her!
So thanks for following along with me this year. It’s been an amazing year. I hope that I gave you some lessons you could use and some new insights into the race. It has been my honor to represent you as the 2014 Iditarod Teacher on the Trail.
