Second-Grade Teacher Awarded Opportunity in Transatlantic Outreach Program

Second-grade teacher Debbie Silverman has been selected to participate in the Transatlantic Outreach Program (TOP) sponsored by the Goethe Institut USA. The goal of TOP is to encourage cross-cultural dialogue and to provide Social Studies educators with global understanding from an international perspective using modern Germany as the basis for comparison and contrast. The program will fund Debbie’s trip to Germany for two weeks this summer as part of a study tour. About the award, Debbie says, “I am excited about this opportunity, look forward to learning, and then sharing what I have gained in some way. Travel this summer to Germany is particularly interesting to me as this is their year of sustainable development with many interesting ideas being implemented throughout the country.” Click the headline for more information on the program. Congratulations, Debbie!
