For six fabulous days, the Denver Branch hosted Page Scholar Cecilia Hunter, a teacher from Argentina visiting several ESU Branches. Ceci teaches Mathematics in Primary School and ESL to adults in a suburb of Buenos Aires. She visited Math classes at Denver Center for International Studies at Fairmont (thank you Vanessa Acevedo!) and Stanley British Primary School (thank you Margaret Duke!), as well as Spanish classes at East High School (thank you Mary Connelly!).
We entertained Ceci at a Robert Burns Supper, a Super Bowl party, and a wine and cheese social for new ESU Denver Branch members.Thank you to Basil Carpenter for driving Ceci around Denver; to Polly Cox for hosting the social and taking Ceci to church on Sunday; and to Mary Connelly and David Wurtzebach, for opening their home to Ceci for five nights. Her stops after Denver include the Nashville, Richmond and Lexington Branches. We send our best wishes with Ceci as she shares teaching experiences in more schools and charms more cities with her sparkling personality!
