A blog following teacher Aaron Jura as he plans engaging, yet relevant English Language Arts content for High School students in New Orleans, LA.
As I had previously posted, I was fortunate enough to be selected for the 2016 summer teacher institute aboard the USS Midway (now a museum in San Diego, CA). Well I am here now (actually writing this post from the carrier) and I am having an excellent time learning with fellow educators and history nerds. I will post a ton of pictures soon, but one of the many highlights was the experience I had on the 4th of July.
A friend of mine is stationed aboard the USS Carl Vinson here in San Diego and I was able to be escorted aboard to watch the 4th of July fireworks from the flight deck of the carrier. I put up a pic above.
If you want to keep up with my trip follow me on Twitter or Instagram for constant updates.
