Hi! My name is Kristi Williams and I teach at Blue Springs South High School in Blue Springs, MO USA. This year I have started a penpal program with a teacher in South Korea, and the other teachers in my department and school are jealous of my project. Many of the other teachers in my department have expressed an interest in getting penpals for their students starting in the fall. We then all got together and thought it would be fun if we got classes from all around the world and then had a "cultural fair" at the end of the year to showcase everything we have learned from our penpals. The American students LOVE hearing about foreign students. The students that would be participating in the exchange program would be 15-18, sophomores through seniors in high school. Things we have exchanged this year include videos of our schools, projects (art, music, etc.), letters, coins, pictures, food, emails, etc. The only thing we cannot do is chatboards, because our district does not allow access to those sites. Please contact me if you are interested in being a "pal" class with one of our classes here at BSSHS, and one of our teachers will get back to you.
