Many schools are back in session, and some students may be asked how they spent their summer vacations.

This week on WBOI, we’re flipping things around and asking area teachers how they spent their time away from the classrooms in our Summer Vacation Series.

Larry Linson is a third grade teacher at Cedarville Elementary school. Larry had the opportunity this summer to explore the national parks out west after receiving funding from a Lilly Foundation Teacher Creativity Grant.

For Larry, it was a dream nearly 20 years in the making. Today he’ll paint us a picture of the things he saw, and talk about why these parks are worth exploring.
