Hello Global Glimpsers and families! My name is Anette Noroña and I am one of your Global Glimpse Leaders. I am so excited to meet all of you and am looking forward to getting to know you and see you grow for the next two weeks.
This will be my second trip with Global Glimpse, I loved how inspiring the experience and the students were and so as tiring as it was, I recommitted myself this year to co-lead your delegation. I have traveled extensively and have also called many places home – the Middle East, Philippines, Los Angeles, and now the Bay Area. I love traveling as I see the world as a classroom – a place to challenge and also nurture me. I taught in San Francisco and now I teach Social Studies at Overfelt High School in San Jose and I cannot wait to bring back what I learned from our trip and from you all and share it with my students. I have also immersed myself in social justice work and think that traveling and understanding peoples’ stories from around the world teaches us to become humbler, more responsible, and compassionate global citizens.
If you and your families have any questions, please feel free to contact me and/or my lovely co-leaders Kimiko and Kelsey. I will see you all soon!
