After several days of missed connections and 10 hour layovers before "next available flights," I have landed back in NH! I must say that the dark nights are feeling a bit odd, but it is good to be home!

I wish to thank, one more time, Dr. Peter Doran for inviting me to join his team again this season, PolarTREC for selecting me as a representative teacher, ARCUS and NSF for funding and supporting the program, the Rye School District for its continued support, and all my family and friends for their support! It was an amazing season and I look forward to continued collaboration with Peter and continued sharing of the experience!
