This week we welcomed four teachers from Ringstabekk School in Oslo, Norway, who were on a study tour to Oregon. They have come to find out more about Storyline because they want to get it going again in their school and there are so many new teachers at the school who have not had a Storyline experience. During their programme they visited Sunnyside School on Wednesday and then we had a dinner reception for them at my house with about fifteen people, most of them from last summer’s Storyline conference planning committee. They spent Thursday at MLC and were able to see Storyline in two different high school classes and in the 4×6 team. This morning we toured Jefferson High School and then they went to Irvington until noon when I took them to the airport. All four of the visitors were in their late twenties so they are young teachers with a lot of energy. I think it was a good way to spread the Storyline message as they are going back to Ringstabekk with lots of enthusiasm and new ideas. I think each one of them found a teacher to do some kind of exchange with. We really enjoyed having them here.
