X-Term with St. Christopher’s and St. Catherine’s
The increased awareness of the benefits of out of classroom educational opportunities is one of the educational trends from the past few years that I can definitely stand behind. Last week I was given the opportunity to partner up with Virginia Fishing Adventures, St. Christopher’s School, and St. Catherine’s School for their annual “x-term” fishing trip. During the last week before spring break students have the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of out of classroom learning experiences ranging from service projects abroad to learning how to fly fish. Luckily for the 9 students who chose to learn to fly fish, the weather was much more cooperative this year. It is an experience these students will remember for a long time, and will hopefully lead to a lifelong love of fly fishing. My phone kept dying from the cold, but take a look at the few pictures I did manage to get.
