Doug Wachob, Tracy Logan and I will represent TSS and Kate Welsh will join our team from the University of Wyoming. We will be gone from January 7 – 25, 2013 including two weeks in Bhutan with about half a week of travel time to and from Bhutan. Pending access to internet, we will update the Journal as a blog to serve as a record of our trip – thanks to Nick Delmolino for helping to coordinate the blog from Wyoming!While in Bhutan, our team will offer two three-day workshops for 25 teachers.
