Taiwan Time

Another excellent Edublogs.org blog

Hello world!

October 17, 2007 by rigrand211 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Hello; we are the Grandersons.   We are going to Taiwan to teach English in an elementary school in Taitung.

I, Irving, and my lovely wife, Ruthie, have  taught 35 and 30 years respectively.  This includes four years together in the Peace Corps teaching in Ghana,  Africa.

We have been teaching in the Rogers School District for the last 22 years and it has been a great place to work.

I am a career science teacher mainly in grades 6-9;  Ruthie is a high school math teacher.

We are looking forward to our assignment.  Taitung is a smaller city by Taiwan standards and is located on the east coast.  I am  excited to live next to the ocean.  Growing up and living in Arkansas I have not had the chance to see the ocean much so it should be fun.   There is  a good beach 1.5 km long near Taitung.

Two other teachers from Rogers are also going to Taiwan with us.  They are Carolyn Scott (with her husband Gene) and Marilyn Hodgin.  We have become friends and will tackle this adventure together.
