This year the school is hosting a trip to Costa Rica to expand students’ education. Mr. Byron Jeppsen and Mr. Clay Sagers are both Spanish teachers at Lowry. They thought it would be an excellent opportunity to broaden the students’ learning.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun in Costa Rica because they’re pretty laid back and the kids will get to immerse themselves in the culture,” said Sagers.
Sagers has experience with both the culture and the people of Costa Rica. 20 years ago he lived there for two years. Sager knows that Costa Rica has changed but remains similar. That’s even where he learned Spanish.
“Well, I expect to have a lot of fun in Costa Rica,” said Jeppson. “It’s kind of an environmental tour.”
Jeppsen lived in Guatemala close to Costa Rica, that’s where he got his experience. He hasn’t been to Costa Rica so it will be a new experience for him. Jeppsen also mentioned that it will be another place to travel.
“I’m looking forward to meeting new people, seeing the differences between Mexico and here, and seeing the different languages and what they eat,” said senior Alexandra Chavez Leyva.
The students attending the trip are very excited and well-prepared. They are delighted to see new cultures and experience new things.
