My teacher, Mr. Solarz, was fortunate enough to travel to Dubai last week for an education conference and to meet former Top 50 Global Teacher Prize candidates for the Varkey GEMS Global Teacher Prize. He shared his unbelievable experience with us, and here are some things that I learned from our discussion:
I was absent for the ThingLink

Here are some tips:
We took off in space about a week ago. Our take off was awesome but frightening at the same time! We were so happy to go to Mars and to space! We all were in the spacecraft ready to go on this mission to mars. Then suddenly, the rocket starts to shake as we all are excited to blast off into space! The pilot is ready for take off and so is the rest of the crew. I was nervous myself and so was everyone else, but we all were ready to go to space. Mia and I both had our legs trembling, while Sophia and Nicole started to try their best to relax. Finally at that second the rocket gave a booming loud roar and everyone was shaking while we starting to zoom off into the air. We took off and were safe! We all were emotional and started to cry a little, but we held our own as responsible adults. We were still in the blue sky, looking at the clouds. And when we all looked down, we saw people waving us goodbye with flags in the air. Léa was jumping in the air and that second she jumps we are in space! The rocket has a sense to slow down once we hit into no gravity and we all float around. Some people swam in the air and others jumped off walls but it was a fun experience. Once more there was a rumble and some rocket pieces fell off into space. Now we are experiencing the life of space and different things you saw seemed almost unbelievable.I saw Earth with its clouds and continents all around, it was also covered with a dark or light shade of blue on it. As we were drifting away from Earth I saw the moon with brushes of dust coming off of it while it shined very bright. The moon wasn’t just the sight we could see but as we didn’t even notice yet were the stars surrounding us! I saw a billions of them and they all had one difference, but the coolest one I experienced was this huge star with a smaller star rotating all around it. As the crew was gazing at the stars, Nicole and I were heading toward the back of the ship where we saw the biggest star of them all, the sun! It shined so bright and brought out so much steam, we even had to leave because Nicole and I were gaining too much heat! Then all of us were at one window looking at the stars but then blam! A huge asteroid appears to fly close right past us and we all seem in shock for a while but as we have a little time to relax we all start to crack up laughing. I looked back at it and it was getting hotter at the minute and I see a burst of flames coming off of it. Now I look near the front of the ship with Lèa and we see Jupiter, a massive huge planet that out rules most of the rest of the other planets. Our mouths are wide open a little because of how it came to be so big and then once we left the front of the spacecraft everyone decides to go to the front of the ship too! After a while we all got bored of the sights because we experienced all of it, well almost everything that was in sight. So I tried to entertain some people and it was very funny but it didn’t really entertain everyone. So I thought and planned with Mia, and then it hit me, I thought we could talk about our different experiences. I heard some stories that made me laugh, cry, shiver and yell a little. Everyone shared a story that reminds us of the life we have back at home. I was a little unhappy and Sophia could see that so she came to me and tried to comfort me with some stories. I was happier now because I forgot about my worries. I learned the different cultures about each and individual person, and I thought it is really awesome! It was thrilling to hare my fun vacations and school days, and learning about everyone was a fun thing to do. Everyone had gone around telling one or two stories on your life and everyone got to share something. For a minute it was silent because we all finished our stories, but then Nicole says to everyone that we can all name off some of the constellations. We all got up and looked out the windows, and Nicole was the first one to name the first constellation then me and Mia and Sophia! We made it a game, but it wasn’t a competition we just tried to name off as many constellations in sight. I thought we named them all but we were missing one, a big one but I couldn’t put my finger on it, then Sophia says she found orion! We all gave a clap as she bowed down to congratulate herself. And right in time I had some coloring books on hand so I layed them out so others could color to relieve stress. Mia laid out some neon markers and crayons for everyone too. No one else thought of any activities but some exercised others floated around the spacecraft. In a matter of time it was time for dinner and everyone had a package of there own chicken, and then for dessert we all had either a cookies and cream sandwhich or neapolitan ice cream. The food was different it was dry ice that impacted the ice cream so it didn't melt, or float away. We were all full and colored some more, but it was getting late. We finished our activities and were ready to go to bed, so we all got in our pajamas. Everyone had their own separate sleeping bag that is velcroed to the wall so we didn’t float away. It was cool because I slept on the ceiling for the one night looking down on the ground, though the leverage had an effect on your blood pressure. We all had a dome shape covered over us for privacy, and the domes had a thermometer to cool down the air or heat up the air. I was impressed with delight and relaxed with joy! I talked to Léa and laughed with her a bit to talk about how are families are like. I learned everyone including me had a dream to visit Mars, and that dream was about to come true.

I am Elizabeth Smith, a doctor from London, United Kingdom. It would be very important to have a doctor on the first manned mission to Mars because it would be safer and people can be covered with healthy lifestyles. I can save lives and help people become more healthy, suited and or ready for this mission. I am excited to go on this adventure because it is a great opportunity to learn life lessons and skills with the help of others. Learning more about other cultures and continuing to be a responsible person can be an adventure that I will take to Mars!
