Hiking on a blue trail up a gradually ascending mountain. This was with a class I was student teaching and I was surprised to find that every single one of the students that signed up for the hike came even though it had snowed that morning, inclining most students to stay at home. I was proud and happy that they were there and we bonded rather quickly by the end of the day. It was one of those moments that was perfect in an instructional sense since I wanted to prove that nature helps to bring humans closer to one another without them realizing it. © 2011-2014.
