I will bring my Teleconference equipment that I hope to connect to your telephone regular hook up. If this does not work, I will have my cellphone with speaker and International call access as a backup for the activity.
Finally, I would like to have your students prepared with at least 5 questions base on the art and what the have learned from Guatemala. The students in Guatemala are also preparing the questions for you.
Sounds Fine, I will let Mayrena (your partner teacher the delay of 20 minutes), you only need to have a phone line and a phone with a speaker (we will make the call using a phone card that I will bring).
Dear Mrs. Plan. I have talked to Mayrena in Guatemala and she is happy to have her students attend the teleconference by Friday May 29th at 9:00 AM.
Please let me know if this is ok with you. Call me at 203-8034376 X 103 and we will go over the details of this activity. Thanks Miguel
I will call Mayrena in Guatemala to find out if this works for her.
My choice and probably Mayrena's choice, will be your last class (after 12 pm).
I will get back to you after I talk to Mayrena.
We are happy to let you know that the comments about your art from your partner class in Guatemala are available as a PDF file!
Please click below to read them (in Spanish).
Besides this, We need to get in touch to define the day for your teleconference with Guatemala, let us please know how is your calendar for the holy week, We could line up the teleconference at some point in mid- April.
It is great to have you here we are looking forward for your comments and postings.
I just finished a conversation with your partner teacher in Paso Caballos - Guatemala (Mayrena) and she told me that her art will be on our way in the first week of March. We will receive here at CC in Norwalk and then I will contact you in order to define the day for the teleconference with them.
End of March perhaps? let me know if this will work for you.
