A Letter To
You From the Author
My name is Paul - and I'm the author of The
which you are now reading. I am writing to you from the Amazon
rain forest in Ecuador, South America, where I am a teacher. I wasn't
born here in the Amazon. I grew up and went to school in the United
States. But, when I finished school, I wanted to learn about
other languages, other people and other cultures. I taught
for two and a half years in Kenya, Africa, and now I'm teaching
in Ecuador. I have discovered many remarkable similarities
and differences about the way people live, and, in the process,
I have made lots of friends. So, I am sending you this 'newsletter.'
It's about similarities and differences, and it's about
making friends with people around the world who are just like you
- and different too!
I hope you enjoy the first five issues
Please send me your original stories, poems, drawings, and questions
so I can put some of them in upcoming editions (teachers/parents
see below). Then you'll be Culture
READING! HAPPY EXPLORING! HAPPY LEARNING!
