I've worn many hats over the
years at NPCA, but the one that I've had on since Day One back in October of
1996 is that of the director of the Global TeachNet program. I treasure my experience as a Peace Corps
Volunteer fulfilling Goals One and Two, but the Third Goal is at the heart of
my current work and one key reason why I traveled to
International Alley – Here We Come…
I loved seeing familiar faces (including Merry Merryfield, RPCV Sierra Leone 1977-1979 - shown in the middle here with Kathy Parker and Susan Neyer - who won not just one, but TWO awards from NCSS this year!) and connecting faces with emails. It just makes my day when I hear a teacher say “You’re the Anne Baker that sends me those great emails each week!” (You, too, can get those great GlobalEdNews emails. Learn more or subscribe.)
… Plus a Happy Hour with RPCVs!
To top off a great weekend,
I joined the AARPCVs for their Happy Hour on Friday evening. While enjoying the local brew (always go with
the local brew!), I had a chance to brainstorm about the 50th anniversary
with RPCVs working for Habitat for Humanity, catch up with current and
potential AARPCV board members, and meet a very recent RPCV, back just four
days from Kazakhstan. He isn’t even from
Thanks, AARPCV, for a great weekend and for your help promoting the Third Goal.
