2010 U.S. Educators Program
During the summer of 2010, I traveled to Japan as part of the 22nd delegation of the U.S. Educators Program. This trip, sponsored by the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, gave me the opportunity to share ideas with Japanese educators and experience the culture and history of Japan. The group visited five schools as we traveled throughout Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima and experienced a home-stay in Ozu City. Past delegations have included Port Washington School District members, Dr. Nicholas Stirling - Former Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, Dr. Linda Welles - Former Manorhaven Principal, Ms. Christine Vasilev - Manorhaven ESL teacher and PWTA President and Ms. JoAnn Suk - Weber ESL teacher.
