Learning our World provides inspiration and resources to create rich learning experiences through travel.  

Welcome to Learning Our World! My name is Michelle Peterson and I am an experienced educator and mother of two. With over 30 years of experience in education, I have dedicated my career to fostering a love of learning in children and adults alike.


In addition to my work as an educator, I am also an avid traveler. I have had the privilege of visiting 160 national parks, 48 states, 15 countries and Caribbean islands. These experiences have given me a unique perspective on the world and have deeply influenced my approach to education.

Travel is one of the most valuable learning experiences for children. Traveling exposes children to different cultures, languages, and ways of life, which helps them develop an understanding and appreciation for diversity. It also provides opportunities for children to learn about history, geography, and the natural world in a hands-on and interactive way. Additionally, traveling helps to develop important life skills such as problem-solving, decision-making, and adaptability.

Through Learning Our World, I will share my knowledge, experiences and tips on making the most of your travels and making your travels an educational experience for yourself and your children. In addition, I will be providing resources and tips on how to make the most of your travel experiences.


Thank you for visiting my website; I hope you enjoy exploring Learning Our World!
