What fuels my commitment to OHPRI...

I had the privilege of being invited by OHPRI to experience life aboard a tall ship as an “Educator crew trainee” in 2010.  I witnessed, firsthand, the power of education-at-sea for developing life skills and a personal sense of empowerment. The strong sense of community and shared purpose aboard a tall ship provide important lessons for those of us that work in schools. I will do all I can to promote our mission to provide programs for educators and the students we serve.
