Quick trip to Italy for work and a bit of fun

For all its challenges, international teaching offers one exceptional bonus: Professional Development in interesting places. The two of us attended a Creativity Workshop series in Florence, Italy this year. On our one day before the program's start, we dashed away to Panzano to see if we could find Italy's most famous butcher, Dario Cecchini. In the hours following our workshop, we explored the lovely city of Florence, often with our longtime friend Linda.

As the host school for the Global Issues Network conference in the region, Concordia was pretty busy for the month of January. So was LeeAnne as the main organizer of this epic event. About 400 participating GIN students and staff joined over 1000 Model United Nations delegates to create a super-conference. Keynote speakers included Ishmael Beah, Phan Thi Kim Phuc and many others.

Getting ready for Christmas!

With the busy life of teachers, the run-up to Christmas is always a blur. We still managed to find a bit of time for some fun in lovely Shanghai, though. With Rebecca working and Cora traveling, we're glad Hannah has dropped in to help us out.
