Sarah Goes to ChinaJuly 28, 2011
Gosh, I wonder what her book will be called?
There were 42 of us on the trip, including a couple of NEA Foundation staff, including Harriet Sanford (President/CEO), Betty Paugh-Ortiz (Senior VP of Innovation), and Susan Burke (Special Projects Director), staff from EF, and from the Pearson Foundation. The group tour was for 10 days, starting June 22, and included Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. Sarah Sutter and Sarah Johnston from NM, extended their trip and spent another 8 days in Guilin and Yangshua, flying out of Shanghai on July 8th.
Sarah resigned from her teaching job at Wiscasset High School this Spring and she leaves for Japan in a week to teach for three years. She has trip pictures from China posted that you can take a look at and a link to where her Japan photos will be posted as well.

Lucky for us, Sarah is going to send blog posts periodically to keep us updated on her adventures. I know I will be looking forward to hearing from Sarah!
