"A History Teacher's Dream!" Ms. Montgomery Pursues Professional Development in China

"A History teacher's dream!" Upper School Humanities teacher Tonya Montgomery is experiencing the trip of a lifetime, as she has travelled to China to train for her role in leading the June 2019 Indian Creek trip to New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji. While learning about important aspects of running student travel abroad, Ms. Montgomery also found time to explore the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Great Wall, and many other bucket list places. This experience has been even more valuable than Ms. Montgomery had expected. "I explored China with a group of teachers whose passion is inspirational. China reminded me to appreciate my freedom, to respect the culture of others, and to stay in the moment."
