|Gifts from St. Mikulas last year|
Katerina Kubesova and I have remained very close since our Fulbright exchange has ended. It may have ended officially but it definitely hasn't ended emotionally or educationally for either of us. In September I applied for the Fulbright Alumni Grant and was accepted. I was able to fund a trip back to the Czech Republic for 11 days.
|Ms. Kubesova and me|
While I am there in the Czech Republic, I will be able to reconnect with students I had the previous year as well as talk with students that I have not met yet about life in the United States. I am excited to take as many pictures as possible so I can bring those back and share with my current students. My ultimate goal is for my students to realize even though it is a big world, we are really not that different.
Keep following for future posts where I will be sharing my experiences while I am there the next couple weeks!
