Focus on Global Education: Global Washington Members

globeHey Global Washington Fans! 

Last week, we introduced our new global education blog. Soon, you will hear about how the earthquake in Haiti is affecting schools, education and youth in the region. Our thoughts and support are with the victims of the quake, as well as the many dedicated aid workers who are on the ground in Haiti.

Today, our GLOBAL ED BLOG is highlighting some of the great global education work done by Global Washington members. Below are just a few of the Washington State International Education All-Stars!
