The Astoria resident is one of only 35 educators from the United States and Canada to receive the annual honor.

Later this year Ms. Page will join Lindblad-National Geographic expedition experts on an 11-day voyage to Iceland for a singular field experience.

“I’m incredibly honored to be selected as a Grosvenor Teacher Fellow and am so proud to join such an accomplished group of educators,” said Page, who teaches environmental science in addition to her assistant principal duties. “I try to teach students about the world around them, helping them acquire tools necessary to explore on their own and make a difference. I hope my adventures in Iceland this summer will inspire my students to become global citizens and environmental stewards who will eventually embark on their own journeys.”

Ms. Page has traveled extensively and volunteered her time over the last 10 years to chaperone students on trips to Eastern and Western Europe, Central and South America and the South Pacific.

Prior to the voyage, Page will travel to National Geographic Society’s Washington, D.C. headquarters for hands-on photography and global outreach workshops and to meet Lindblad Expeditions’ naturalists and network with program veterans.
