First off, on behalf of the ASL students and myself, I would like to thank Dr. Mark Rust and McDaniel College for making this trip possible. Without them, the memories created from this trip would be non-existent. We would also like to thank Hector for putting us under his wings and ensuring us a safe and memorable trip. He is a man of wisdom and shared many of his stories with us and I am glad he was able to accompany us on the trip.

The students at the schools we visited. Where do I start? We learned from them as much as they learned from us and being around them was a rewarding experience. I could see the group grow from our first day of teaching together to the dreadful, last day of teaching. On Friday, all of us were very sociable with the students and felt much more relaxed and confident in our instruction of the solar system.

I really enjoyed all the schools we visited and I’m sure some of us have our favorites, but we can all agree they were all wonderful and filled with amazing students.  Most of all, it was being together and meeting the people we met that made this a wonderful and memorable experience.
