Today was very uneventful, so I have few pictures. I woke up, watched the Hobbit II with Javier (he found out I’m obsessed with all things Lord of the Rings), did work, went to work, went to dancing lessons, and had dinner and a great conversation with Kimi (Canada).
It was a good day, though. I finished Dostoevsky’s Poor Folk and another chapter of Freire’s The Politics of Education. I was authorized to use a travel scholarship I was awarded at school for a trip to Jamaica in November to attend the International Conference on Urban Education, the first annual conference hosted by the nonprofit I coordinate social media for, the Urban Education Collaborative. So: planning for Jamaica shall commence! I’d love to see if there’s still availability for me to do a presentation of Model UN as a Freire-an approach to education, but I’m not sure if it’s too late, or if I’d have time since I’m managing all social media while there.
Tomorrow, we meet kids so that we can begin to work in the morning, too.
As it stands, I’ve been here three weeks, and I have three more to go before I head home.
