Barbados......what a beautiful island.  As a Fulbright specialst, I will be working alongside the members of the Barbados Association of Reading for the next two weeks.  My focus will be on reading instruction and students with learning disabilities.  I will have the opportunity to visit numerous schools, conduct teacher trainings, and give lectures at the Erdiston Teachers College and the University of West Indies.

This morning Christina Morris, Education Officer from the MInistry of Education, and I were interviewed on CBC Good Mornin' Barbados to promote the work we will be doing the next two weeks.  I was also given a tour of the Ministry of Education and met many of the Officers that work to move educational practices forward.  It should be a busy, but productive two weeks.
