teaching, learning and living around the world
I like this word, makutano. It means junction or meeting in Swahili. To me it captures what I’d like Beans & Rice to become. My goal for 2015 is to expand my blog readership and to make this space more of a conversation! A makutano for teachers and adventurers across many different contexts.
I have three requests, Beans & Rice readers!
1) I invite you to speak up! I’d like each post to be less of a single voice telling a story and more of a conversation starter. Share your views and your own stories in the comments section. I value the crossroads and the conversation- the makutano.
2) If you’ve enjoyed following Beans & Rice, please invite your friends to follow! There are now three options for following:
3) Send me one photo and short caption of an important makutano from your life, your travels or your teaching. I’d love to collect and share the makutanos of your lives. Maybe it’s literally an intersection. Maybe it’s a symbolic crossroads. Maybe it’s an important conversation. Send your photo and short caption to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
