Beautiful Belize: The ocean at Placencia.

Welcome to my first Newsletter!

Hello and welcome to my first ever Teaching Traveling Newsletter, bringing you travel and global education articles, events, and exclusive goodies monthly.

It's been an unbelievable 4 weeks! After writing guest articles for Education Week, The Huffington Postand Free Technology for Teachers, I got married in an epic wedding (yay!), then we set off on a wonderful two-week Honeymoon in Belize. Now back in Boston, I'm gearing up to run the big Meet, Plan, Go! Career-Break Travel Conference in Massachusetts and to start my eighth school year teaching in Boston Public Schools.

Browse these goodies, below, and do comment on and share widely anything you find useful!
