NFSI Cultural Rotations

It's Cultural Rotations organizing time!

Please begin thinking of what country you would like to present.

We will be opening up the doors to all Spanish Speaking countries this year to allow you to focus on your favorite country or country of expertise.

Do not be afraid to choose one that another teacher is presenting, we may have doubles of some countries.

More exciting information coming soon.

Thanks for sending Laura Trelles your country name by Feb 2nd.
