Introducing our New Scholar at-Large

Welcome Mary Coffman, a Durham native who will be living in Argentina!

Mary Coffman grew up in Durham, North Carolina back when the downtown still smelled like sweet tobacco. She then went on to study English and Spanish at Kenyon College in Ohio. After traveling to Peru and living in Spain, Mary moved to Costa Rica where she taught English to international students. She then spent half-a-year traveling through South America, staying with friends and families, and learning about the sources of our resources. In 2008, Mary worked as a Case Manager with Catholic Charities at Centro la Comunidad in Burlington, NC. She will be working towards an MA in International Relations at the University of Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina for 2009 and half of 2010.

To share Mary's experiences and read about her adventures, please follow along on this blog and check back often. To ask Mary a
question about life and school in Argentina please send an email to Julie at World View (kinnaird@unc.edu). You can also post any comments, using the "comment" function after each post.

Resources and links for teaching and learning more about Argentina are posted on the right hand side of the blog. We will update and add to these resources regularly!

We look forward to learning more about Argentina! Welcome Mary!

Hola Mary. Me llamo Murdina y enseno espanol en CCC en New Bern. Tengo cinco estudiantes que quieren conocerle y preguntarle de la vida de Buenos Aires. Tengo un gran interes en sus estudios. Cuantas clases tiene? Puede decirme algo de los libros que tiene que leer y del estilo de la ensenanza alla? Muchas gracias.

Lamento que no puedo poner acentos en lo que escribo. M.
