 cheryloakes50 ->   Interesting, same kind of thing with Canada, too.

 Peggy George ->   do your students really understand the importance of going global?

 alicebarr (Seedlings) ->   I grew up going to Canada all the time (Buffalo) now we need passport and it takes forever to go back and forth

 Peggy George ->   when did the passport requirement come about?

 cheryloakes50 ->   What a great idea for your high school to have a chinese teacher from China.

 Peggy George ->   My sister in law got to participate in an exchange with China when she was a principal and said it was such an incredible experience

 cheryloakes50 ->   Peggy, where was she located.

 Peggy George ->   that's really exciting Alice!
