The registration deadline is June 1, 2014, but space is limited, and many programs will be full well before the deadline.
Educators have the option to earn graduate school credit and professional development credit while seeing the world. The trips are eight to 24 days in length and are designed and discounted to be interesting and affordable for teachers.
GEEO provides teachers educational materials and the structure to help them bring their experiences into the classroom. The trips are open to all K-12 teachers, university educators and administrators, and retired educators. Educators also are permitted to bring along a non-educator guest.
