Host a Korean Fulbright Teacher in February 2009!
- Hello RPCV's!
The University of Texas at Arlington will help coordinate the stay
of two Korean Fulbright Teachers from February 5-18, 2009. The
teachers will spend part of their time at a local elementary school
and part of their time at UT Arlington in an effort to become
familiar with the US education system.
We are looking for two families to host the Korean Fulbright
teachers, preferably in the Arlington area. We do not yet know the
gender of the teachers, so we would prefer for couples to volunteer
as host families.
Homestay Hosts will provide the following:
Private bedroom (May be shared with a second Korean teacher
of same gender in separate beds if necessary)
Direct access to bathroom facilities
A desk with appropriate lighting
A closet and drawer space
Warm blanketsKoreans are not accustomed to American heating
Daily breakfast and evening meal
Daily transportation to and from school assignments
Opportunities for sightseeing in the area and cultural
activities in the community
Please contact Julie Holmer at jhomer@.../817-272-2355 if you
are interested, and she will be glad to share more details.
