Panama Educators on Campus

Dear Wilkes University faculty members, 

Congratulations on a successful academic year!

It is with great pride and anticipation that I report out that we began hosting our second 8-week cohort of educators from Panama on-campus beginning May 21, 2016. I look forward to expanding our opportunities of engagement with the campus at-large each semester. For now, we have a unique potential because of their presence during the big American holiday of July 4th. 

In addition to learning about pedagogy and English, our goal is provide authentic cultural American experiences. If you are interested in 1) hosting members of this cohort with your planned holiday activity or 2) chaperoning members for the Kirby Park festivities please respond directly to Janelle Ellsworth (copied here) with your intent no later than Wednesday, May 25th for optimum planning purposes.

I look forward to sending confirmation emails to positive responses. Thank you for your openness and consideration.

It's a great day to be a colonel!
