Hello! My name is Louisa Connaughton. I teach 4th grade at BB&N with Christina and Maria Elena. I am an avid outdoors person and passionate educator. I am very excited about this trip and exploring and adventuring with you all. I did a similar traveling program during a semester in college, which arguably was quite a while ago, but I have seen first hand how powerful such group experiences can be and am excited to meet everyone and embark on this journey together.
At times I find the threat of climate change to be paralyzing and frightening. However, one of the reasons I am looking forward to this trip is that I think humanity needs people who are willing to learn, cooperate and work together to tackle challenging problems in our world. Joining this group, for this trip, at this point in time, seems to be a step in the right direction.
