Tales from Beaulieu sur Mer, France

How many people can say they’ve been snorkeling in the south of France? Not many! But I’m one of the few who has been lucky enough to have this experience, and it happened to me this past summer in Beaulieu sur Mer, France. One humid morning in France I woke up at 5 am to […]

Tempe Delegates In Regensburg

Every year all the Tempe delegates upon their return think that the country they visit was by far the best and that their experience was the most impactful. I wish I could say that the eight delegates traveling to Germany are different, but in truth we too think our experience by far has to be […]

Dawn Milovich Visits Beaulieu-sur-Mer on TSC Educator Exchange 2013

I had the privilege to be an educator exchange delegate this summer in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, France.
