1st Fulbright Conference

I had the opportunity to hang out with Jay and his class at Mofet today. Click the clip to see what class was like. Listen carefully at the 16 sec. mark. Yep, that's how I feel! While here, I note Israeli teachers are as susceptible to forgetting cell phones as American teachers are. So far, 2 cell phones have rung! On another note, it seems Catlin Gabel is not the only school trying to maximize student hours in school by scheduling trips during vacation time. The Israel Ministry of Education recently decided that all Israeli schools would no longer be allowed to send delegations abroad. This article from Haaretz says it all. This is actually a test post to see how video embeds....but I thought it would be a great way to introduce everybody to what I am actually doing in sunny, 68 degree Tel Aviv.
