An Image a Week Project

Ana Maria Menezes a friend and former co-worker in Brazil started this amazing project with the objective of having teachers and students around the world share a picture a week with a paragraph to go with the picture. So we can all learn more about other countries' cultures and customs while students have the chance to learn from each other and improve their language skills. Our school is very happy to participate in this project. Our English Language Learners ELL students, teachers and Spanish class are thrilled to be part of this project.

Please access the project and leave us some comments. We cannot wait to hear from you :-))

My Petition:


Save energy by inverting daylight savings time during winter.

As we now live in the 21st Century, we also need to think as 21st Century citizens and leave the preconceptions and misconceptions of the past behind. We need immediate attention to this petition! Benjamin Franklin in the 18th Century suggested at that time that it would make more sense for farmers to have more daylight in the morning so they could save on candles by rising earlier to use morning sunlight. But this is no longer part of our reality, with the invention of modern farming equipment this is obsolete today. We need to concentrate in saving the planet by economizing energy. If we had longer daylight in the evenings during winter, we would save an enormous amount of money and energy. Doesn't it make more sense to have longer evenings during winter in this era?

Presentation about Brazil

Jill Litwin a 4th Grade Teacher at Rutledge Hall kindly invited me to her classroom so her students could ask me some questions about Brazil. I put together a presentation about Brazilian food, currency, and other curiosities. See the ppt presentation below and also watch the video of the presentation. Have fun!
