It was a rainy, dreary morning in Dachau which fit for the feeling of this experience. It is difficult to express in words what Dachau Concentration Camp was like. You can read about it in books and see pictures, but to actually see it is indescribable. I will never forget the feelings I had - sadness, anger, and disbelief. It was absolutely silent throughout this entire experience. Everyone felt the same.
I am excited to take my students on this journey with me. I am eager to bring back the German history and culture and connect this with our curriculum. My intent is to learn more about the advancements with Germany's renewable energy and help my students and Willow Springs Elementary imagine different futures and the role that they can play in the world.
