I am so excited about the professional contacts I have established this week!
My first professional contact is from New South Wales, Australia, her name is Jenny Bridge. I found Jenny through a facebook group called Teachers around the world Preschool Penpals (thank you to Dr. Davis for the link in the announcement board). Jenny has been teaching for 30 years, teaching children between the ages of 3 to 5 years old. So far I know that she loves to paint!
My second professional contacts name is Jennifer Boyd. I found Jennifer through a colleague and friend of mine. She is from Auckland, New Zealand and she has been teaching for around 7 years. She teaches children between the ages of 3 to 5 and half years. I will be in contact with Jennifer over email.
The resource I chose to expand my knowledge and awareness of what is happening in the world is Global Fund for Children. The sentence that caught my eye on this organisations website is ‘we do all we can to let kids be kids, no matter their circumstances’. As result the Global Fund for Children organisations fights for children’s rights and help children to pursue their dreams. The children they reach out too are children from around the world who are in such violent situations such as war, slavery, trafficking, child labour and so forth. I have subscribed to their weekly newsletters and hope to be able to learn and contribute to this organisation in some form or other.
