Tom Hall talks with Jen Reiter

Jen Reiter, a third grade teacher at the Gilman School in North Baltimore, will be heading to Anchorage, Alaska, on Friday to participate in the 2014 Iditarod, the nearly 1,000-mile race through the Alaskan wilderness from Anchorage to Nome. She won’t be one of the mushers, but rather, she has been chosen to be this year’s “Teacher on the Trail.”  Jen Reiter joins Tom Hall in the studio to tell us what that will entail.

You can keep up with Jen's adventure here.
