Dear Cecilia,
I am sending to you the report for the ESU Trip 2013.

Introduction
The ESU Walter Hines Page Scholarship gave me the opportunity to visit schools in the east coast of United States of America in February 2013. I visited independent, public charter and magnet Elementary, Middle and High Schools as well as Vanderbilt University and Peabody School of Education. I was particularly interested in learning about the new dimensions in teaching and learning taking place in leading schools in US. I was motivated by the "Learning for Life" vision that each school seeks to inspire each student to serve and lead in our changing world.

Walter Hines ESU Trip 2011 ALEJANDRO SOLERNO
St. Andrew's Scots School
Coordinator Mrs Litty Mora
ESU Argentina Executive Committee

In February 2011 I was able to travel around the US, visiting schools in different towns, learning a lot about the US educational system.

It was a great opportunity to meet all kinds of fantastic people, great teachers and hosts.

More importantly though, the ESU branches in the US welcomed and opened their houses to me, and I felt at home every step of the way.

I greatly appreciate the opportunity given to me by the ESU Argentina, and then by the ESU US!

I would also like to thank St. Andrew's Scots School and the Heads of School, who supported me on this trip, making it, in fact, possible at all!

From this page, you can choose to see my full itinerary in one page, a more detailed description of every city I visited (New York, Naples, Nashville and St. Louis), the maps with schools and all my pictures from the trip.

It's the people!
Before you embark on this reading, I would like to highlight what I think is the most important conclusion from this trip. Schools, resources, programs, exams or IT are all sitting on the backseat to the real driver of student's learning, the teacher. It sounds obvious, but how difficult it is to know beforehand if a given person will be a good teacher, even with a star resume! In the classroom you see the difference, clearly.
But in this trip I got much more than just seeing teachers in the US setting. I got to meet lots of people, my hosts, ESU members, teachers, friends that formed the core of my experience. I took with me conversations, ideas, perspectives and challenges from all those interactions, trying to hold on to them, writing them, putting them into practice in the classroom, keeping them in the back of my head until the time is ripe to use them.
That has been the most valuable aspect of the trip, the people I met and the interactions I had with them. Don't get me wrong, I saw great buildings and ideas, fantastic landscapes and new cities I did not know before, and I'm grateful for seeing them, but the fundamental, the core, was the people.

I would specially like to thank Alice Uhl for organizing the itinerary for me.
And my fantastic hosts! Joy and Bill in Naples, Bill in Nashville, the Stewarts and the Lewingtons in St. Louis, I'm in debt to them. They were fantastic, welcoming me in to their houses and taking care of me all along. I believe they went beyond their call of duty to make me feel at home!

And to everyone else I happened to meet on the way, thank you for a wonderful experience!

About the Program

"The Page scholarship tour to the United States has been utterly invaluable to my understanding - it clarifies so many of the issues that were heretofore educational theory stuck in the depths of a page. It has also been a most enlightening experience for me as a teacher and a private individual."

What are the Scholarships?

The Scholarships are intended to promote the exchange of educational ideas between Argentina and the USA. Scholars travel to the USA for tree weeks to study a specific aspect of American education which interests then and which is relevant to their own professional interests.
