Smith MS teacher Creates EU Website

Robin McMahon, a French teacher at Smith Middle School, created a website, Getting to Know Europe, to help share ideas for grant activities.  There is also a an EU grant information site for other educators interested in applying for European Union (EU) grants.

Smith's tradition of Global Connection has been enhanced by McMahon's three EU grants.  Each year, the grant allows McMahon to travel to France and Belgium with students to help learn more about international education.  While abroad, students have met virtually with students back at Smith MS and community members.

In February 2012, members of the EU toured Smith MS and made a presentation.
