Yesterday I looked at the calendar and was struck by the fact that my trip to Colombia is only ONE MONTH away!  I have been having so much fun “virtually” traveling to Europe, Africa and Asia with my fellow Teachers for Global classroom that I almost forgot, that I too will be setting of on one of my own very shortly!

I have learned more details about my trip. I will be in Bogota for 6 days, followed by 10 days in the town of Armenia, the provincial capital of the Quinido Department–part of the “Zona Cafeteria”, –coffee country!  I, along with Ryan Linton, an elementary ESL teacher from Nevada are lucky enough to be working with  a fantastic Colombian educator –Nancy Echeverri.  We are in the process right now of working out the schedule of our time together.

Suddenly I have a very long list of things to do. One of these is to create a presentation about my local school community to share with the teachers and students of Armenia, Colombia.

Question for kids: What do you think I should tell the students of Armenia about our school? About Whitefish Bay? About Wisconsin? Any and all ideas are welcome! Thank you!
