Getting to Know Global Connect Teacher Authors

Who’s writing this blog?  Lots of people – each from a different place and with a different story.  So, each week, there will be a Getting to Know you question posted that teacher-authors will answer.  This will help all of you get to know all of us just a little bit better. 

Do you have a question about us you would like answered?  Feel free to email you question to us at heidiraki @ gmail . com.

    There's nothing much yet as I have just started. I have been inspired by the vast number of wonderful teaching blogs out there and Heidi encouraged me to make my own. ;D

    Hello all!
    I'm Sarah and I'm living in Holland near Amsterdam. I'm from Minnesota originally. I'm a Spanish teacher and have been teaching for 8 years now. :) I've taught in various wonderful settings including in immersion settings, face to face classrooms & online. I've had the pleasure of teaching a variety of age groups as I have a K-12 teaching license. :)

    <3 this blog!! Thank you for helping us connect!

  12. Hi everyone!
    I'm Trish, the newest member of this site. I've worked with children for a number of years now but not in my very own classroom (I'll have one starting August, yey!). I am an early childhood teacher and a new blogger. I've lived in New Zealand, Australia and the Philippines (where I am currently located). Soon, I will be moving to Thailand to take an Early Years class.
    Thank you so much for this blog. I can't wait to meet teachers from all over the world.

    kind regards,
    Trish @
