Mr.Brandin Shost's Gifted class took a virtual tour of the Thai Royal Palace recently during a one hour broadcast via  Skype. Mr. Shost is in Thailand teaching English for three weeks. While there he is also giving his students at BES an up close and personal tour of Thailand, despite the 12 hour time difference. While  online students learned about  cultural differences, architectural design, various traditions and most of all the high regard this country holds for it's monarchy. Students that were able to participate were Jamie Sumpter, Ansley Mitchell, Zoe Modica and Lauren Norwood along with their family members. 

Thank you Mr. Shost for making learning exciting!

We are lucky to have you!

Congratulations Bay!
