Meet the Adventure Team

Saludos! (Greetings!) And welcome to the Galapagos Islands E-Travel Logs! My name is Paul Hurteau and my partners name is Lilia Cai. And YOU are about to travel to the Galapagos Islands with US -- from right inside your classroom! We'll be visiting several schools on Santa Cruz, San Cristobal and Isabela Islands. Along the way, we'll explore the many wonders of this famous volcanic archipelago, get to know children who live there and, of course, encounter its many amazing animals. You can read more about Lilia and I below, then click forward to begin the adventure. Happy trails!

Paul Hurteau, a former English teacher, is the Director of OneWorld Classrooms and an Arts-in-Education specialist in New York State.

He speaks Spanish, French, Swahili and Luo. Also a musician and a poet, he wrote all of the songs and poems featured in the Classroom Travel Resources.
