Good Day, I remember working with some students from Albuquerque High School during Desert Storm. We met at school at 2am, quickly learning about time zones. We spoke with an Israeli student on a lumaphone, making us pioneers in videoconferencing. He shared with us that he was wearing a gas mask and was very concerned about his pets who didn't have any masks. Snap! At that moment the ABQ students became global citizens and brainstormed about how they could save animals from attacks also. I have fond memories of working with US and Muslim teachers at Columbia University as part of a State Department grant. I learned that teachers all over the world have the same "corazon" (Spanish for heart) and they all care so much about the future. My passion in education is project based learning and this stems from my work with iEARN. Our students have an authentic audience and assessment and work on real world problems.
