The following is a guest post by Lancaster Schools teacher Ann Tillman, the winner of our 2016 "Spring Break or Bust promotion".
Back in March, I was thrilled to find out that I was the winner of the Classroom Central Spring Break or Bust promotion and a $500 American Airlines gift card! With plans to go on a mission trip to Los Angeles with the youth from Second Baptist Lancaster, I knew exactly how I could use the gift card. I was able to apply the gift card to my airline tickets since we were flying American Airlines.
This was also a special trip because my two sons, ages 16 and 12, were on the trip. We had a great flight there and back. I had the opportunity to work with children in the Hawthorne and El Segundo communities in West LA at a summer day camp and a sports camp while watching our own youth step out of their comfort zones and grow spiritually. We also had the opportunity to spend an afternoon at Santa Monica Pier for some fun and relaxation before returning home. It was a great opportunity to visit and experience a place so similar and yet so different from home.
Hopefully, I will be able to return to LA next summer. Thanks again, Classroom Central and American Airlines!!
