About Me or Reason for Joining the GEC:
My dream is to develop a virtual learning community that includes schools in various countries because I believe that if children are exposed early to a variety of life perspectives, they will grow in wisdom and respect for other nationalities and hopefully contribute to the health and preservation of all cultures and peace around the world. Please contact me if you would like to collaborate in educational projects.

Also..... I love reading anything I can get my hands on, crossword puzzles, and riding my palomino quarter horse, Dylan.

Great ideas. Unfortunately, we don't have computers in our school and whenever i like to communicate on internet, i have to borrow my friend's office laptop as we don't have power in our school. It is a village school and in a poor community but we can send emails, photos and write letters. We have a rich culture and very different from yours, a lot to learn from each other, are you still interested?

Hello: I' m from Puerto Rico and love also doing sports.As a school librarian in an elementary school I would love to have my teachers and students collaborate in any of your projects. Willing to learn.

Hi! My name is Julie and I'm a language teacher in Illinois - just north of Chicago. I have 6th graders in French who would love to collaborate with your language classes. I also think I could convince our Spanish teacher to work with us on this as well. What kind of ideas did you have in mind?

i think the projects depend on, as you say, our imagination. Anyway, i've never done such things before 'cos just i had no idea of how we could use digital media for students. but now thats what i want to do, though my knowledge in this area is not sufficient :) I work for a private linguistic centre where kids and adults study languages, and English is number one :)
So, we could think about " Our Winter","Holidays" or "New Year", or first start from general topic like interests and hobbies to show our kids that they are all the same all over the world ,or something else.

What do you think?

Hey, its great that your husband is Russian. that's amazing. Now we should keep in touch, for sure :))))
