STAMFORD, Conn. -- In recognition of her commitment to geographic education, Louise McMinn, a technology teacher at Scofield Magnet Middle School was selected as one of the 2016 Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic Grosvenor Teacher Fellows.
McMinn is one of 35 educators in the United States and Canada to receive this honor.
“It is a true testament to the quality and commitment of the educators in our district. We are excited for our students and staff to learn from her experience," said the interim superintendent James A. Connelly.
Later this year, she will take a 10-day Lindblad voyage aboard National Geographic Endeavour to the Galapagos Islands for a field experience, accompanied by Lindblad-National Geographic expedition experts.
Before the voyage, she will travel to National Geographic Society’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., to participate in hands-on workshops covering photography and outreach, and will have the opportunity to meet Lindblad Expeditions’ naturalists and to network with previous years’ Fellows.
This year marks the 10th year of the Grosvenor Teacher Fellow Program, established to honor former National Geographic Society Chairman Gilbert M. Grosvenor’s lifetime commitment to geographic education.
