U.S. Coast Guard Tour

Today we were invited to tour the U.S. Coast Guard base on Miami Beach.  We were afforded this amazing opportunity with help from the mentors: K. Maclin, C. Schider-Heisel, K. Baxter, M. Teixeira, T. Bigay, M. Metz,  S. Sekitoleko, E. Rivera, M. Lange, and C. Campbell who have been visiting our Dreamers at Nautilus Middle School.  The day started with a quick bus ride across the McCarther Causeway.  Once we arrived Officer Macklin escored our group to a cozy eating area where the kids had all the pizza, soda, water, cookies, and brownies they could eat!  With full bellies, the kids boarded Coast Guard cutters, patrol and rescue boats,  to see what its like on board.  It was really good to see all the dreamers simply walking side by side with the officers, asking questions, laughing, turning on the boat sirens and simply experiencing a memorable moment.  Shout out the the BEST MENTORS IN MIAMI!
