Math, Ultimate, and Origami

Due to a generous Williston professional development grant, I was able to spend all of Spring Break traveling through Israel and the West Bank. I visited schools, saw math classes in action, folded Origami with masters, taught Ultimate, and saw many new places.

Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 2.54.41 PMDue to a generous grant from the Williston professional development program, I will be traveling to the Middle East for 17 days to visit math departments, coach Ultimate, and fold origami. I leave on 3/5 and return on 3/22.

While in Israel and the West Bank I will be visiting Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Beit Sahour, Tamra, Ra’anana, and several other cities.

Needless to say, I am incredibly excited.

While traveling I will be posting updates to my Facebook and Twitter feeds.
