Knoch Primary School third-grade teacher Mrs. Tina Zacherl has been selected, along with 50 other educators from the United States and Canada, as a National Geographic Society Grosvenor Teacher Fellow. Mrs. Zacherl will travel on a Lindblad Expedition to Australia's Wild Northwest Kimberley Region where she and others in her group will conduct experiments and research that she will be able to share with her teaching community and with her students upon her return.
Per their website, "The Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship is named in honor of Gilbert M. Grosvenor, chairman emeritus of the National Geographic Society, in recognition of his decades-long work supporting pre-K–12 teachers and promoting geography education across the United States and Canada. The expeditions were donated in perpetuity to the Society by Sven-Olof Lindblad and Lindblad Expeditions in 2006 to mark Grosvenor’s 75th birthday and honor his service to the enhancement and advancement of geographic education."
Congratulations, Mrs. Zacherl. We cannot wait to hear about the great things you see and do there and are able to share with the students at Knoch Primary School.
