- Rotary InterCountry Teacher Exchange



The Greater Paris Rotary Club sponsored Bruce Cooper as an Exchange Teacher to District 4890 in B. A. Argentina. Bruce departed on June 20 and will return July 20. Bruce is a Spanish Teacher in Paris High School having been teaching there for the past ten years.

Bruce reports:

"Well after the 17 hour day of travel, I made it to Buenos Aires. The city is beautiful and the weather is perfect (about 60 during the day and down to about 40 or 45 at night).

Today I went to three school with Graciela Calio and enjoyed talking to the children and the adults she teaches. We began at 8:oo this morning and finished at 8:30 tonight. I am trying to attach some pictures of the children and the adults. The adults gave me a demonstration of the tango that was wonderful.

Everyone is so very kind and pleasant here. They go out of their way to make me feel comfortable. I deeply thank you for this unforgettable opportunity and will be sending you e-mail often with pictures (I hope)."

Bruce is married to Sally and they have three children - Joyce, Lydia and Clinton.
