Vista PEAK P-20 Campus Pathway Director Melanie Moreno and teacher Jessica Cuthbertson are on a mission to create as many innovative educational opportunities for all students across the world. The two Colorado educators will soon travel to Kenya to further this mission.
Cuthbertson and Moreno will embark on a 13-day journey to promote and enhance The Global Schoolhouse. Founded by Moreno, the initiative aims to connect students from all parts of the world to provide authentic learning opportunities and forge avenues for communication so young people can discuss issues affecting their own lives. The organization's hope is that through the power of connection The Global Schoolhouse can provide educational opportunities for all and transform lives in the process.
"We don't yet know where this could go or where this could take us, but to me that is the beauty of a grassroots idea."
- Melanie Moreno, The Global Schoolhouse founder and Vista PEAK P-20 Campus Pathway Director
