Teachers Exchange programme
Programa de intercambio docente
Secondary Nordelta & Olivos - What's going on?
This year we resumed the Teachers Exchange programme. Elizabeth Klatt, our Head of the Science Department was selected to participate in the Teachers Exchange programme with Westlake Academy (Dallas, Texas) during the summer holidays. At the same time three Secondary students, Valentina, Tomás and Belisario, were doing their exchange experience in this school founded by Barbara Brizuela, a beloved Head of NORTHLANDS in the past.
Teacher exchange at Westlake, FW. Texas, USA
How to describe in a few lines everything lived in this life experience? This trip allowed me to discover a new place, learn and exchange experiences with other teachers, coordinators and school authorities at Westlake Academy. I looked at aspects of American society that enriched me as a person, both professionally and personally. Thanks to the generosity of my hosts, I was able to share the daily aspects of their lives.
I have made observations and interventions in different lessons inherent in the area of Science, contributing humbly with my teaching experience. We have held meetings exchanging ideas and projects in PYP, MYP and DP, planning strategies for better learning. I have participated in activities such as the Group 4 Project (DP) and an interview on forms of protest in Argentina ...
I have added to my life friends, from different parts of the world, for some reason connected us strongly. I shared unforgettable moments, from cooking “empanadas” for the superbowl to piloting a light aircraft.
I have only words of gratitude, not only to the hosts who warmly welcomed me and did everything possible to make my stay memorable; to Northlands School for giving me this enormous opportunity to live the expression an open mind.
