Teacher trekking almost 4,000 miles to help students learn

MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - A teacher is using an unusual trek to help her young students learn.

Janet Moreland is paddling a 3,700 journey down the mighty Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico.

In April, she began the kayaking trip from the Missouri River in Montana.

Moreland is hoping to reach the Gulf of Mexico some time next month.

If she finishes, she would be the first American to complete the entire distance.

Only two men, one from Australia and the other from Canada, have done so in the past.
