Will You Host an Exchange Student?

I know it's been a whole month since my last post. Sorry about that everyone. I'm still working on my novel and also still need to complete my workshop with James Patterson. I plan on doing that very soon and will share what I've learned about my writing during those sessions and just on my own.

I also will share about some of the books I've been reading. I've finished a few more over the past month; I just need to see if they fall under my 2016 reading challenge.

But on a whole different note, I'm on a mission. Yes, a mission to help bring exchange students to my area in Southern Utah...namely Washington County, Utah. This past school year I signed up to be a local coordinator, and I have enjoyed. My two students have taught me a lot, and I hope they have learned from me, their host families and new American friends. (I think they have.)

As this school year comes to an end, I find myself looking forward to the new school year (2016/17). I'm going to miss my students I currently have now when the school year ends. I, of course, also need to find new host families for my future students. March is one of those crazy months for me, but one I enjoy as I get to meet so many people, families, and students.

This upcoming year, I have three students coming who are from the following countries: Germany, Georgia, and Kazakhstan.

If you, or someone you know, would like to be one of the wonderful host families to take one of my students in, or if you would like to host a student and live somewhere else, please contact me through my email vgrenier@flag-intl.org
