We spent 5 hours on Saturday personally addressing 200 letters to send out to New Orleans professors,doctors, and lawyers. The envelope also enclosed 4 students' responses to the quote "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." by St. Augustine  We're hoping these local professionals and citizens will contribute to our trip by donating or sponsoring a student or more! We need all the financial help we can get! 

Yesterday and today we started our Krispy Kreme fundraiser! The kids were super excited to sell to their peers. Thankfully, a lot of teachers jumped on board and sold some boxes, too. But no one sold as much as  the students! Huge shout out to Jose Rodriguez for selling more than anyone else and to Mecca for being such a HUGE help to me in organizing and counting our revenue! We made $ 150 by selling 50 dozen-boxes in two days. Not bad, but we have tens of thousands of dollars to go! These small ongoing projects will be going on throughout the year but we will need your support, too! Donate today to help us out!

    They call me "Ms. E!" I'm a World Geography teacher at the International High School of New Orleans and the Director of our Globe Trotters program. I'll write most of the posts but some will be written by our marvelous students!
