Off To Cuba!

It's official! I've booked a trip to Santiago de Cuba. I will be staying at the Melia Santago Hotel. I will be visiting my teacher friends at the Cuban schools as a part of my Cuban Schools Project [CSP], in particular at the Toronto Friendship School, the Oriente Pedagical and the Jose Marti Institutes. Professor Jose Luis Tejaro and I will make the rounds. I began the CSP in 1992 to provide direct educational aid to the Cuban schools for developing the English programs at the schools, and the work continues!

Some of you will be familiar with my project, but mostly not. I hope to post live blogs from Cuba, as well as photos, and will bring my camcorder as I take this trip on the road, more details to follow. Stay tuned! This trip should be very interesting and a lot of fun!

Funding for the CSP comes from OECTA/ TSU [Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association/ Toronto Secondary Unit] and the OTF [Ontario Teachers Federation].
