Wanted: Air miles for language teachers-to-be

The Bellingham Herald
"Trish Skillman, director of the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages Program at Western Washington University, is looking for donations of air miles to help send student teachers to Mexico to learn more about the culture of their future students. The program holds classes that would normally be held in Bellingham but instead are held in Queretaro, Mexico, where the students can live with Mexican families, experience being an outsider, and learn some Spanish, all while they work on their teacher preparation coursework."
