GreenMount Immersion Program in IcelandEach year, the eighth-grade students of GreenMount School travel to a remote part of the United States or to another country as part of their Immersion Program. Students are immersed in the destination, learning about the geography, history, and culture of the people who call that area home. Students generally travel in the spring for 6-9 days, depending on the destination and goals of the trip. Recently, students traveled to Iceland to experience the raw beauty in nature and immerse themselves in the study of geology and Icelandic culture. In other years, the students have traveled to the Canyonlands of Utah, Costa Rica, the Netherlands, Scotland, and Spain. Academic preparation includes an independent study project on the country to inform travel and communication.

Welcome to City-Zena Q & A series of real conversations with real Baltimoreans sharing their thoughts on issues that are top-of-mind to many of us.  Whether you’re just starting out, raising a family, struggling to get by, or at the top of your game, we all have something in common.  It’s easier to communicate once we understand each other.

Meet Laura Marisco20-year Baltimore resident, the past 14 of which were in her Hampden row home, where she’s raised a family.  Laura was a kindergarten teacher at The GreenMount School for eight years and is currently the CO-OP manager and co-curricular program manager for the school.  While much of her academic career occurred out of state, she took a few classes at The College of Notre Dame of Maryland.
