Originally, I am from the weird and wonderful Salton Sea in southern California. If you have never heard of it before, do yourself a favor and look it up! It is definitely an interesting destination within its own right - especially when coupled with a trip to Joshua Tree National Park, Palm Springs and/or the North Shore.
Currently, I have the unique privilege to live and teach on the White Mountain Apache Reservation in northeastern Arizona. This place is just so unique culturally, geographically and topographically. If you ever plan a visit to northern Arizona, do let me know! I will tell you all about the local hidden gems!
As a teacher living and working in such a remote and rural area, it can be difficult to network with a diverse range of teachers, or even attend various trainings and professional development workshops. I knew that other teachers have this exact same experience, even when they live in a large city. Ironically, as we become more connected online, we can often feel more isolated and lonely in our everyday lives.
Enter, Traveling Teachers LLC.
This company stemmed from my own desire to grow and learn, both professionally and personally. We all know that we can do and be better for our students, and for ourselves - and to do that, we need to learn from each other.
Learning from each other can be difficult, though. In addition to humility, teachability, and the acknowledgement that we do not know it all, it can be downright tough logistically to meet teachers from other schools and walks of life.
To remedy these problems, Traveling Teachers LLC provides all kinds of opportunities for teachers to travel, learn, grow and teach - for the benefit of them and their students. Teachers have the opportunity to learn and grow with teachers all over the world, yet these opportunities provide enough downtime for them to return home feeling refreshed.
I hope that you will join me as we continue to learn, grow and travel together!

We know that travel has a large (and often negative) impact on the environment. This is why we donate a portion of our profits to offset our carbon emissions. In general, it's our aim to reduce waste in all aspects of our business.
Teachers are often independent people who like to do their own thing. We get that, because we're also like that! But sometimes, it's good to connect with other teachers. Our trips offer the best of both worlds - amazing experiences with colleagues, balanced out with downtime.
We accept payment plans for most of our trips and services. Your payment information is securely collected using PayPal and Stripe.
We are constantly on the lookout for fellowships, graduate programs, doctoral programs, workshops and more that meet the needs of teachers we serve. As we get to know you, we'll match you up with opportunities and experiences you'll love.
