Who We Are:


Founder Dr. Jessie Voigts is a mom who loves sharing the world with her daughter. She has a PhD in International Education, and is constantly looking for ways to increase intercultural understanding, especially with kids (it’s never too young to start!). She has lived and worked in Japan and London, and traveled around the world. Jessie is the publisher of Wandering Educators, a travel library for people curious about the world. She founded the Family Travel Bloggers Association, and the Youth Travel Blogging Mentorship Program. She’s published two books about travel and intercultural learning, with a third on the way. You can usually find her family by water – anywhere in the world.

Editor Kerry Dexter: Colors of sunrise in the Western Isles,  watching evening fall at the foot of Ben Nevis,  feeling the hand of history face to face with the Lewis Chessmen at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, the quiet streets walking home after a late night singing session in Glasgow: these are a few of the things which form Kerry Dexter’s connections with Scotland. She is a writer, editor, and educator with academic and professional background in arts, humanities, and history.

Her work includes stories and photography which have appeared in National Geographic Traveler, Strings, Symphony, and Perceptive Travel, and at her own site Music Road.  She is music editor for Wandering Educators,  has been contributing editor  at CMT/ SonicNet/MTV, and  at Barnes & Noble Music online.
