Spanish Teachers Travel to Peru

Over the summer, four of Arlington's Spanish teachers -- Meagan Bassett, Katia Haberman and Christina Toro in the High School, and Anne Zachary in the Middle School -- travelled to Peru! Ms. Haberman is a native of Peru, and was returning home to visit her family over the summer. Ms. Bassett, Ms. Toro, and Ms. Zachary participated in a Primary Source program entitled, "Peru: History, Culture and Contemporary Life." In addition, Ms. Bassett was awarded an Arlington Education Foundation Continuing Scholar Award to participate in the program.

The trip was an enriching experience for all, and teachers are planning instructional units that incorporate their cultural experiences, bringing what they learned back to their students.
