International Diversity Day!

Teaching at any DODEA school is always interesting, but teaching at the NATO headquarters brings so many more opportunities. We have students from over 20 different countries and they love to share their heritage and culture with our community. Today the entire school gathered to watch fellow students present traditional dances from around the world. The dances, dancers, and clothing were absolutely beautiful!

Living away from our friends and family in the US is emotionally difficult at times, but the international and US friends we have met and become close with only add to the excitement of living in Europe.

Talented students from Turkey mesmerized their classmates with a beautiful dance.

We have many students from Spain and love to watch their swirling dresses.

Pilar was a rock star in our class today and she left her dress on all day!


  1. What fun, to work with such a diverse population! I'm a new follower!

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I am so excited to have found your blog - you are teaching in Belgium - my BBF went there on an exchange for a year and then we hosted a student from Belgium. I would love to visit that day. What a great day of sharing you had!!
