“I feel very fortunate to have been a part of the 38th Iditarod. Because of Target’s willingness to sponsor the Teacher on the Trail program, I had the opportunity to witness and share with students around the world one of the greatest sporting events in the world. By using Skype and the Target® Iditarod Teacher on the Trail Blog, I was able to communicate with students the experiences I was having as I was traveling the length of the Iditarod Trail. As I moved from checkpoint to checkpoint, students were able to ask questions about the weather, the people, the race, and the dogs. With my guitar, I was able to share folk songs and songs about the Iditarod with people in the villages. This has truly been a life changing experience for me, and one that I will continue to share long after I have returned to my daily routine. Thank you Target for providing this wonderful opportunity, and for all the opportunities you provide for students and educators everywhere.”
