Leaving Shanghai Soon!
Well, in twelve hours I will be meeting the eleven students at the airport. Our three hour flight will take us closer to India than we are here in Shanghai!
We had a great sendoff from the school at the assembly this afternoon, and I had so many folks come by my classroom after school that it has been a challenge keeping focused on the last-minute details. Oh, I suppose I will need to pack at some point, too! Details, details.
This has been a true community effort here at Shanghai American School, and the project has been the result of the contibutions of (literally) hundreds of people: teachers, students, parents, administrators, our business/legal office, support staff, technology team, nurses, guidance counselors . . . what an incredible journey it has been!
The best part? The real journey--the actual trip--begins soon. I cannot wait!
