Welcome to the educational link to the NFB 2001 Everest Expedition. My name is Kevin Cherilla and I am a 7th and 8th grade physical education teacher from Phoenix, Arizona. I will be the base camp manager for the 2001 NFB Everest Expedition. Part of my duties as base camp manager will be doing daily correspondence with students and adults around the world sharing my thoughts and curriculum information.
I have put together many lesson plans for all of you to use in the classroom and to find out more about mountaineering and the people and country of Nepal. These lesson plans are a culmination of my ideas along with Kim Gattone’s, a sixth grade school teacher and mountaineer from Sante Fe, New Mexico and other educators from around the country. Kim Gattone was a climber on the South Col side of Mt. Everest in 2000 and will be a part of an expedition on the North Side this year.
Reba Bull, the wife of climber Brad Bull and one of our base camp staff, is a high school Spanish teacher from Denver, CO. Please email her any questions you may have during our expedition.
Please utilize the lessons in your own creative way and modify them according to the academic levels of your students. Lesson 25 has other website links you can visit and expand your lessons.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to call me before March 23 and/or email me during the expedition at:
