My Humphrey Fellowship officially begins tomorrow. I'm about to embark on a new ten-month learning journey at the Pennsylvania State University, one of the leading US universities. I'm thrilled to take part in this year's program at the College of Education along with 9 fellows from 8 countries. We're part of a 2014/2015 cohort of 150 fellows from all over the world. As I'm the first Croatian school teacher to have been selected for this prestigious scholarship, I'm going to blog about my year as a Humphrey Fellow as often as possible.
So I'm writing this pre-departure post from my home in Zagreb. My bags
are all packed and yes, I've packed everything but the kitchen sink,
which was actually quite easy. But parting from my family is not easy at
all, it's unbearable! But I'm sure we'll manage to go through it.
