| Study Canada: A Professional Development Program at Risk
Like many of you, I am a Canadian-born American citizen who still feels strong connections to Canada.

It's reassuring to know that I can go to Tim Horton's for an "Iced Capp" if the urge hits me. More interesting though is that I am professionally connected to Canada in a unique way...I work nationally in the United States to promote the inclusion of Canada in American K-12 classrooms and, most importantly, coordinate the premier professional development program in the US for training American teachers about Canada called the STUDY CANADA Summer Institute for K-12 Educators.
