Global Gab on Southern Africa

I’m starting a speaker series at Innovation Academy, and you are warmly invited to attend the first session:

Global Gab Session: Southern Africa: Tuesday, April 3rd, 3:30-4:30, Room 241

Come hear about my trip last summer to South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Botswana.  I will be sharing stories, photos, and videos from my trip. Over 25 days, I traveled over 3,000 miles with a group of American teachers in an overland truck. We camped most nights, and had experiences such as riding in a traditional canoe through the Okavango Delta, swimming with a whale shark, walking with lions, and getting soaked by the waters of Victoria Falls.

The session is open to any student, teacher, parent, or community member who wants to attend. Middle school students attending without family members are welcome, but families should contact the main office to make arrangements for students to complete homework at Work Completion Center from 3-3:30 until the presentation begins.

Mark your Calendar for Future Global Gab Sessions:

  • May 22: Ukraine
  • June 5: Turkey

Why Global Gab?  My hope through sharing my travel experiences is to push our school community to be more globally aware, connected, and ever-adapting to the needs of the 21st century. Join me on a quest to globalize Innovation!  By attending any or all of these sessions, I hope that you will learn about places you’ve never been before, understand what it’s like to expose yourself to another culture, and feel inspired to get out of your comfort zone (through travel or “virtual” travel). Please consider joining us!
