American Embassy visits Professor Tyrone Santiago at Escola Parque

On October 10, 2010, Escola Parque, through Professor Tyrone-Santiago, had the honor to receive representatives of the American Embassy for an official visit. Being in Salvador to participate in professional appointments, the committee decided to visit the CECR- Escola Parque for more information about how it has been the work of Professor. Tyrone regarding the divulgation of his experiences in the U.S. trip.
Ms Tara Rougles, Cultural Affairs Officer of U.S. Embassy in Brasilia, Mr. Mark Pannell, Consul and Head of Press Section, Education and Culture in Rio de Janeiro were some members of the American delegation. Once in Escola Parque, they could know its nuclei; the Global Connections Project, in partnership with the Lovejoy School (USA) and get feedback from Prof. Tyrone about issues involving the U.S. educational system and about volunteering as an important potential contribution of that country for culture and education in Brazil.
After this visit, Escola Parque aims to closer ties with Brazil and USA in the fields of education and culture, by using Global Connections Project to be always at the service of such a goal.
