Yesterday we flew from Manila to Legazpi City, which took about one hour. In the United States when you take a short flight, you are usually served peanuts or pretzels as a snack. We were served a sweet roll filled with chicken. Here are some photos from the plane of the islands I saw as we flew.
We were met by our wonderful host teacher, Cheryl Pavericio, who teaches math at Oro Site High School in Legazpi City, and also teaches calculus (an advanced form of math) at Bicol University. After checking in to our hotel, she brought us to her school to meet the teachers, and some students who were registering (remember, school starts on Monday!). Imagine our surprise when we saw the banner hanging in the school welcoming us! (They took photos off of our Facebook accounts). We then went to visit the Superintendent of Schools (similar to Mr. Pirozzolo's job in Auburn). To end the day, we took a drive around their beautiful city.
Congratulations to Caitlyn Cook for being the first to answer the math question (and also to Ryan, Cole and Alex M. For answering correctly, too!). What do you think Pride and Philippe are sitting on in the last photo? What body of water is behind them?

I am a school librarian at Genesee Elementary School in Auburn, NY where I try to inspire students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers and adventurers! In June, I am traveling to the Philippines with a group of amazing teachers from around the country as part of a Teachers for Global Classrooms Fellowship. I hope you'll join me on my journey!
