Teachers are the conduits to the next generation, and we believe in their power to inspire the changemakers of tomorrow. Through the Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship, Lindblad Expeditions and The National Geographic Society are honored to offer PreK–12 classroom and informal educators a life-changing experience in the natural world.
By bringing them on board our ships, it not only impacts them, but their students as well. After exploring transformative places like Antarctica, the Galápagos Islands, the Arctic, and beyond, they return to their classrooms and communities with a new sense of global and environmental awareness.
These educators then use their field-based experience to empower their students to become planetary stewards and inspire their peers and colleagues with new ways to teach students about the world. Many of our past Fellows become changemakers themselves in the field of education, serving as mentors to other teachers, creating innovative learning opportunities, and supporting National Geographic’s educational initiatives. The impact of this unique program has a ripple effect that often lasts for years.
In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 1-7, 2022), learn about some of our exemplary past Grosvenor Teacher Fellows and watch the videos below to meet the new class of educators coming aboard in 2022.
