Ms. Serfass’s Costa Rica trip

On June 13, 2020, Ms. Serfass will be taking some of the high school students all the way to Costa Rica. They will be traveling by plane. There will be zip lining through the rainforest, hiking through a cloud forest, riding the rapids, and more!

Costa Rica is often viewed as one of the most fascinating places in the world.

“I am so excited to go on the trip! To be outside of the classroom, collecting data for statistical studies while enjoying a new cultural experience is so fascinating. My students are going to have so much fun and return home with a new outlook on life,” said Ms. Serfass when asked if she is excited about the Costa Rica trip.

There is a total of eight hundred-one miles of coastline in Costa Rica.

“I want to hear how Costa Ricans pronounce their words in Spanish. I am terrified and excited to see volcanoes. I want to eventually visit every Spanish speaking country. I want to try out the native foods and learn about their culture,” Ms. Serfass answered when asked what fascinated her about Costa Rica.

Costa Rica is divided into seven provinces; San Jose, Alajuela, Heredia, Cartago, Guanacaste, Puntarenas, and Limon.

“It has been a personal goal of mine to visit Costa Rica for the past ten years. My minor in college was Spanish, and I want a chance to use my language skills and combine them with my mathematics background. This is a STEM trip, which is one of the biggest educational trends now,” said Ms. Serfass when she answered why she chose to take students to Costa Rica.  

Costa Rica is well known for its gourmet coffee beans with the famous Tarrazu, considered among the finest beans in the world.
