Teacher Exchange Info & International Update

Teacher Exchange Teachers to Speak

Today we focus on our International activities and Teacher Exchange. Speaking Thursday, Dec 9th, will be Roswell teachers Emily Clausen (Hembree Springs) and Angelique Hayes (Crabapple Middle) Argentina Teacher Exchanges who represented the Club by traveling to and visiting foreign school systems in our Teacher Exchange.

History

Created and developed within Roswell Rotary in 2009, the Teacher Exchange facilitates cultural and education between members of one of the most influential groups in existence: teachers. In concert with the Rotary Club of Pilar, Argentina, our first teacher was hosted in Roswell in 2010, and our first to Argentina – Paula Mengel of Roswell High School – was shortly after.

The Why

The purpose is to have a lasting impact on the teachers, and through them students they teach for the years forward, elevating the lives of both. As such, Emily and Angelique have other former teacher exchange participants to share their experiences and impact, to illustrate the power and reach of one project, created by one very special Rotary club.
