Global Glimpsers! I can’t wait to meet you all and to start our adventure in the DR together! We’ll all be getting to know each other very well within the next three week. Seana and I will also be calling you all this week. Just wanted to say a quick hello and to introduce myself. My name is Jeanne Scheppach and I have been teaching history in secondary education for the past 8 years in the East Bay. Currently I am at Dougherty Valley High School in San Ramon and loving my APUSH and world history curriculum. My room is all flags, pictures, and mementos of past travels as I firmly believe in traveling and experiencing other cultures and different perspectives. After the DR I will go to South Korea to learn about the Korean War and contemporary Korean politics. Talk about different parts of the globe! But most important to me is to help foster courage, compassion, and commitment in you all during your time in San Cristobal and to take the experiences you have in our time together and to build upon them in your lives to come. It will be an amazing journey together and I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you.
