The CIR Faculty/Student Committee is organizing a Portrait of Turkey event generously supported by the Turkish Cultural Foundation. This event is a must attend for anyone who has traveled or lived in Turkey, for anyone who is interested in Turkish cuisine, and of course for anyone who is interested in international education and what is happening in our local area schools.
We have a record breaking status. This is the sixth year in a row that we have submitted a grant application and won the travel award. CIR has now sent a total of 22 area teachers on the Turkish Summer Tour, and this luncheon helps to recognize that accomplishment.
Admission is $18.00 which includes authentic Turkish cuisine. R.S.V.P. is required as seating is limited and previous events have been sold out.
The focus of this event is on the four Santa Fe teachers who, with the generosity of the Turkish Cultural Foundation and administered by the World Affairs Councils of America, recently returned from a two week study tour of Turkey. We will hear about their experiences and how they have integrated them into their classrooms. The teachers are:
Joan Stango from Francis X. Nava Elementary School
Chuck Charleston from Native American Community Academy
Elsie Scott from La Cueva School
Whitney Humphrey From Rio Grande School
For program questions, contact Dr. Jeff Case at CIR. These four teachers were part of two larger groups of teachers from 18 councils around the country. The Tour of Turkey was fourteen days of travel and visitation of Turkish cultural sites, schools, institutes and development projects.
