Yesterday was my first field trip--as the teacher/advisor. There was a unique feeling inside me being on a school bus taking a trip, yet I wasn't going to see or compete--that I was the leader of the pack. Listening to the students in the back enjoying themselves to (despite leaving at 5:30am) and returning from the trip excited me that I was able to provide that experience. All students returned with no medical or legal issues so I would say it was successful. Just another reminder as to why I am in this profession!
