Secondary Nordelta & Olivos - What's going on?


This year we resume​d the Teachers Exchange programme. Elizabeth Klatt, our Head of the Science ​Department ​was selected to participate in the Teachers Exchange programme with Westlake Academy (Dallas, Texas) during the summer holidays. At the same time three ​Secondary ​students, Valentina, Tomás and​ Belisario, were doing their exchange experience in this school founded by Barbara Brizuela, a beloved Head of NORTHLANDS in the past.

How to describe in a few lines everything lived in this life experience? This trip allowed me to discover a new place, learn and exchange experiences with other teachers, coordinators and school authorities at Westlake Academy. I looked at aspects of American society that enriched me as a person, both professionally and personally. Thanks to the generosity of my hosts, I was able to share the daily aspects of their lives.
I have made observations and interventions in different lessons inherent in the area of ​​Science, contributing humbly with my teaching experience. We have held meetings exchanging ideas and projects in PYP, MYP and DP, planning strategies for better learning. I have participated in activities such as the Group 4 Project (DP) and an interview on forms of protest in Argentina ...
I have added to my life friends, from different parts of the world, for some reason connected us strongly. I shared unforgettable moments, from cooking “empanadas” for the superbowl to piloting a light aircraft.
I have only words of gratitude, not only to the hosts who warmly welcomed me and did everything possible to make my stay memorable; to Northlands School for giving me this enormous opportunity to live the expression an open mind.

¿Cómo describir en pocas líneas todo lo vivido en esta experiencia? Este viaje me permitió conocer, aprender e intercambiar experiencias con otros docentes, coordinadores y directivos de Westlake Academy. Contemplé aspectos de la sociedad norteamericana que me enriquecieron como persona, tanto en lo profesional como en lo personal. Gracias a la generosidad de mis hospedadores pude compartir la cotidianeidad de sus vidas.
He realizado observaciones e intervenciones en distintas clases inherentes al área de Ciencias Naturales, contribuyendo humildemente con mi experiencia docente. Hemos realizado reuniones intercambiando ideas y proyectos tanto en PYP, MYP como DP, planificando estrategias para un mejor aprendizaje. He participado en actividades como el Proyecto de grupo 4 (DP) hasta una entrevista sobre formas de protesta en Argentina…
He sumado a mi vida amistades, de distintas partes del mundo, que el azar nos conectó fuertemente. Compartí momentos inolvidables, desde cocinar empanadas para el “superbowl” hasta pilotear una avioneta.
No tengo más que palabras de gratitud, no sólo a las hospedadoras que me recibieron cálidamente e hicieron todo lo posible para que mi estadía fuese memorable; a NORTHLANDS por haberme dado esta enorme oportunidad de vivir la expresión “open mind”.
