Spring Break as we all know is right around the corner, and everyone is getting excited for vacations, and no school for the next week. We all know our teachers and what they do in the classroom, but what are they doing on Spring break? I asked Mrs. Corballon this question, and her spring break is definitely a lot more exciting than grading papers. “I am traveling to Costa Rica, we will be there for 8 days. We will be doing tourism activities like seeing beautiful sights and meeting people, we will be doing a school visit and we will also be attending the Earth University and get to know how Costa Rica is dealing with conservation and protecting the planet. We have some active things that we will be doing like zip-lining, and we will cap off our visit with a folkloric evening on the last night that we are there. We are flying out of Rochester, and there are 6 students attending the trip.” To hear more about the Spanish departments trip to Costa Rica, see Mrs. Corballon, and if you are interested in being apart of a Spanish trip next year, contact Mrs. Corballon for more information. Mrs. Barrett also told me about her plans for spring break and she said, “me and my family are going to Fort Meyers Florida and we rented a condo on the beach, so we will be on the beach for a week. I don’t know what else is around there because we’ve never been there before, so we are going to explore once we get there.” From these two different vacations, it can be inferred that teachers do very different things during spring break, whether it be zip-lining in Costa Rica or relaxing on the beach in Fort Meyers, it is safe to say both of these vacations sound a lot better than being in the classroom. To all of the students and teachers traveling over spring break, have a safe trip and a fun vacation.
