Fleeing Ukraine!

"Being an International teacher and a world traveler has been an honor of a lifetime and a dream come true. However, nobody expects their dreams to come crashing down due to an invasion of war. My name is Lindsey Murff, and just recently my family and I had to evacuate Kyiv, Ukraine due to the Russian invasion. I'd like to share with you our experiences and the experiences of our students and colleagues. This war deserves all our attention and concern as it is a direct fight for democracy and freedom." Please join Lindsey, if you would like to learn of her experiences, as well as ways in which we can help.
