Teacher proposes foreign travel

August 19, 2010

A local teacher is trying to gauge interest in educational trips to Europe.

Chuck Watson, Basehor, who is an art teacher in the Kansas City, Kan., school district, has taken groups in a wide range of ages several times in past years. He is looking to take another group this coming March to Paris.

There are two options Watson is proposing: A trip to Paris or another package with trips to Paris and Amsterdam.

The trips, organized through Education First, would begin March 15. Cost for a student to go to Paris is $2,035; cost for an adult is $2,280. An option to go to London as well would cost an additional $320.

For trips to Amsterdam and Paris, cost is $2,246 for a student and $2,551 for adults, with the London option costing an additional $440.

For more information, contact Watson at (913) 724-1661 or
