Washington, D.C. is a unique city in that there are so many different cultures represented. Every day I am surrounded by so many different people with various backgrounds, interests, and styles. Frequently in the summer there are cultural events where you can try new foods, learn about another place, try out a dance, and even do some shopping! Check out the pictures from the cultural events I attended. In particular, it was really special for me to visit the Basque Festival! I have many friends and family who live there, so I was so honored to learn about their lives.
Check it out! You can visit the home of our current president! To reserve your self-guided tour, you have to first write to your senator and have a background check. Once you are approved, you are ready for your tour! To enter the White House, you have to go through 4 security check points: 2 ID checks, 1 Canine check, and 1 metal detector. Throughout the tour and on the grounds, there are secret service everywhere keeping the house and the president safe.
Meet Miss Coon
I love to learn new things! One great place to learn is by spending time in nature and the outdoors! Any opportunity that I can get to take a bike ride, hike, or walk I will gladly do it! I also love music and enjoy playing my flute at church and singing with my sisters. But most of all, I love kids. My passion is to teach children to inquire, and to love learning about this incredible world as I do. My students tend to think I love to learn just because I am a teacher. By modeling the struggle of learning and researching my own interests, I hope my students and others can follow my example and be empowered to seek after their questions to find answers in the midst of the struggle.
