Here's a video from my TGC group regarding the importance of a global classroom.
The San Diego Zoo made this great video, highlighting our amazing experience.
During my time in New Orleans at the National Council for the Social Studies, I was able to meet several TOP alumns. They shared their thoughts on how the TOP program has helped their career.
The companion video to my 3 Thoughts about Germany.
I wondered what were the first three things that come to mind when you think about Germany. I was amazed when I polled students and teachers. Check out this video I made. Write the first three things that come to mind for you (try before you watch the video) and write them in the comment section below.
Relive the moments of anticipation with me as I find out whether or not I will be accepted to the TOP Fellowship. *Spoiler Alert* I was accepted! This was a pretty gutsy move I feel looking back, as to whether or not to film this moment. Had I not been accepted, this would definitely be a pretty depressing video! By the way, my wife's comments of "too bad you have to work" refers to the letter coming in on a conferences day, which means I couldn't have had to wait any longer in the day to open it. :)
