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!

Awesome

Go get 'em Craig!  This is a great project and I know you will pull it off with style.  I stayed there for a week so I know what a special community it is.  The students will soon know how lucky they are to be there.   Good luck!  (Oh, what website are you using for this site?)

Site details

Hey Jerry--thanks for the note. Scott Williams is the guru when it comes to creating the site . . . amazing stuff--the guy's a genius! Get in touch with him about the details of how he managed to weave his magic.

What a treat it is to see the Microcampus program continue to develop. I look forward to learning more with and from these amazing students as they explore their world, challenge themselves, and learn to handle themselves outside The Bubble of their usual routines.
