Iditarod Trail Teacher – Heidi Sloan


Welcome to The Big Impact Episode 126 and a fascinating conversation with Heidi Sloan, 2018 Iditarod Trail Teacher. Heidi was selected from a national pool of applicants to embed with the mushers, dogs, pilots, volunteers, officials, rescuers, and everyone else involved in the Iditarod.

Why? So she could develop classroom curriculum for school kids around the world. The race teaches vivid lessons in teamwork, math, physics, biology, geography, perseverance, and so much more. It’s a remarkable story so please listen and SHARE the link!
