Hello world!

Welcome to Ms. Meeuwenberg’s travel blog!  I’m headed to Brasilia and Ibitinga, Brazil in June through the Teachers for a Global Classroom Fellowship.  IREX and the State Department are sending 12 secondary teachers of all disciplines to Brazil to interact with cooperating teachers and in secondary classrooms throughout the country.  I’ll be spending most of my time in the city of Ibitinga.

In July, I will be traveling to my high school’s sister school in Omihachiman, Japan to teach English with one of my Grand Rapids Christian High School colleagues for two weeks.

This promises to be an eventful summer, and I hope to post pictures, videos, and updates here.  Many thanks to my awesome students this semester who helped me put together a PowerPoint presentation on American culture.  I can’t wait to share it abroad!
