Most teachers use their summer vacation to take some time away from students. However, this wasn't the case for Towles New Tech Middle School teacher Carissa Richardson. She spent her summer traveling all over Europe with 40 students.
Richardson spent time in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom in the People to People Ambassador Program. The program was founded by Dwight D. Eisenhower, with the notion that peace comes through traveling abroad and understanding other cultures.
