1. Dear Friends in Belarus,
Greetings from New York City! I have had the honor of working with the iEARN-Belarus team over the years, and have learned a lot from them and their strong national network of teachers and students.

I am certain you will have a wonderful experience connecting with your colleagues and peers around the world through iEARN. There are lots of projects to recommend to you. One that is close to us here in New York City is an environmental project called
YouthCaN, which connects youth online year-round, and also at annual events at local institutions, like the American Museum of Natural History here in NYC. You can check it out at http://www.iearn.org/projects/youthcan.html

Enjoy your time together on Nov 9th, and we'll be looking for you in the Teachers Forum:

Best regards,

2. Hello Teachers in Belarus,

I send greetings from New York City in the USA! We are excited that our global iEARN community is growing! You will find iEARN to be a wonderful family of educators who share the vision that students can learn better when connected by this amazing technology. We also believe that they will become global citizens, able to work together with all of our students to make the world a better and more peaceful place.
With warmest regards,

10. Dear Lyudmila and friends in Minsk,

Welcome to the iEARN family!
I know that with Lyudmila as your guide, you will have a fun and successful
workshop. There are many wonderful projects created by iEARN teacher
and student members from arond the world. These projects will help you
make learning more engaging and relevant for your students. When they
realize that they will be communicating with others around the world, they
will naturally try to write with more purpose and care. When they realize that
their voices are important and that others will really read and think
carefully what they have to say, they will grow substantially as learners.

On a personal note, I would like to invite you to visit my project about
the issue of bullying. You can choose to post your thoughts and ideas in
the iEARN Discussion forum for this project at http://foro.iearn.org/.f152d44/
or you can go the project's Web site at www.bullying.org
where your students can share their stories, poems, drawings, music, videos and more.
I would also like to invite you to visit my own class Web
site at www.coolclass.ca "Canada's Coolest Class!"

Yours in friendship, learning and iEARN,
