Hoboken Hike

November 3, 2020 | Rebekah Lowe

The second grade classes went on a hike around Hoboken to go along with our study in immigration.  We started our walk early in the morning.

We looked at the different houses in Hoboken and observed how some look modern while others are much older.  Hoboken has so much history!

Our first stop was at the Lackawanna Terminal.  We saw where some immigrants would first come after arriving in America.

Then, we drew some drawings of the terminal.  The students spent time looking at the details that can be found on this old terminal.

We got to run around Pier A and spend time in nature.

Afterwards, we sat and walked around the steps to do an observational drawing.

Lastly, we walked to Elysian Park and got to eat and run around.

On the way back to school, we passed restaurants and were amazed at all the different cuisines that Hoboken has.  Many immigrants came to Hoboken after arriving, and it’s awesome to see all the history and traditions that have been brought to our city.

Teacher, Grades 2&3

Rebekah Lowe knew that she wanted to be a teacher ever since middle school when she was inspired by an English teacher who developed interactive games and creative acronyms for many of the topics that were discussed. Because of her teachers, Ms. Lowe attended the education program at the College of New Jersey, where she experienced a variety of classroom environments, and earned a teaching degree. She was also a part of the Education Honor Society. After graduating, Ms. Lowe taught English in South Korea, and during this time, she was able to travel around Asia and experience new cuisines and cultures. Her love of travelling increased, and she hopes to travel more in the future! She began her teaching career in the United States at Mustard Seed School in 2018 as a second and third grade teacher in the Meadows class. She’s excited to be a part of the school community and share her many experiences with her students.
