    I have always loved National Geographic. Having been an educator for 30 years, I’ve seen its value in teaching students about things and places they might never have known.

    Thanks for your comment. I agree! My grandfather got me a subscription to National Geographic (my first subscription) when I was in elementary school. I still remember reading about different countries and animals–it made a big impression on me.
