The World Village Comes A'visitin'

This week marked a momentous occasion for our World Village initiative: we had our first visitor. Now, it's not the first visitor the school ever had, but it's the first to occur because of our global connections initiative. Mr. Samuel Yalew is the founder of the Ethio International School in Bahirdar. He stayed with my family for an evening after a week-long conference in DC, then visited our school for a day. He gave informative and interesting presentations to our 2nd, 3rd and 8th graders. I was not only impressed at Mr. Yalew's ability to communicate and connect with our students but also with our own students' questions in response--they were thoughtful and insightful. Here are some images:
