Mrs. Brangwin has been in Mexico since July 1. She is one of 16 teachers from across the US who was selected to participate in a US Department of Education Fulbright Summer Seminar abroad. As i write this, I´m in San Cristobal Chiapas near Guatamala. Lots of poverty. Lots of children out on the streets trying to sell things to survive. The lesson here–is be grateful for what you have–even things like a kitchen, bathroom and electricity. You can read about her adventures, including getting lost in a Mayan ruin and meeting lots of iguanas who couldn´t speak English and tell her the way out at http://nelda.edublogs.org/.
