Why hello there Glimpsers. Ben and myself have sent an email to you all already lightly describing ourselves but let the blogs begin! My name is Erik Contreras and this will be my fourth year traveling with Global Glimpse. I honestly love traveling with students and learning all I can from each trip. I graduated from Cal State Northridge with my B.A in Chicana/o Studies and a minor in Central American Studies waaay back in 2006. How old were you all in 2006? I have worked at James Logan High for about 6 years now as the Alternative Center Monitor. I am also a lucky father of a awesome little 8 year old girl. I love how she says Nicaragua but trust me she says Rio Bamba just as cute.I think I am getting a little carried away with the photos now. But, please reach out to Ben or myself or respond to this blog. We will be calling you very very soon. Can you believe July 2 is already next week? Holy Smokes.
