August 12th

Friday August 12th big day of professional development at school.  Ran into an school teacher at the conference this morning who has been teaching overseas with his wife for 30+ years.  His kids are in college and he owns a home in the state which he returns to every summer for about a month. He recently bought land in Nicaragua where he spends summer time as well.

We've met a large number of families who have made international teaching their career.  Kenya, Chile, Thailand, Viet Nam, Bulgaria, China, the list is endless.  Their is a large community out there.

We had a speaker today, Yong Zhao, author of a book I'm reading, "Catching up or leading way."  Dr. Zhao is a dynamic speaker whose got a great message about what's working in chinese and American Education.
