Encanto Elementary science teacher Lynn Howard is joining a polar research expedition this summer to the land of ice bears, as one of six winners of a Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship, in conjunction with the National Geographic Society. Howard teaches environmental science to 450 students in first- through sixth grade. The fellowship committee cited her dedication to inspiring students to care for their planet. She will join naturalists on the National Geographic Explorer in the Arctic on expeditions named “Land of the Ice Bears.” More information on the expedition can be found at www.expeditions.com/polarbear . Howard’s goal is to bring her field experience back into the classroom with geographic awareness and ocean stewardship.
