Instead of taking the summer "off," I will embark on a 22 hour journey from Washington D.C to Entebbe, Uganda on July 1. While in Uganda, I will work with various schools to observe and coach Ugandan teachers until July 30. I will have the privilige to collaborate with a team of 25 educators from around the world to plan, design and lead workshops with little to no technology! Simply, a Chalkboard and Chalk? Yikes! This opportunity will make me a better teacher and leader, so that I too, can continue to have a postive impact on my students. I know that I will come back to the states with a plethora of new and creative ideas to inspire academic growth in my girls!
I will stay in a Lodge where electricty is scarce and no hot water! This will be a challenge, but I am ready to take it on to be a part of a program that empowers teachers around the world!
This program is not free and this is where I will need a little help!
Please support me so I can continue to grow as an educator and help ensure that every student, no matter where they live, has a well qualified teacher!
Here is a breakdown of the Expenses:
Program Fee: $1,660
3 meals a day, accommodations, transport in country, 24 hour support y in Uganda
I appreciate any support you can donate! I will share pictures and write about my trip!
