Heart Knot Mine features teachers in an exchange program. Have you ever considered an exchange? Where would be your ideal place?

Funny you should ask! More moons ago than I care to admit to, when I was studying for my Fine Arts degree, I was offered a scholarship to go for one semester to a British University. Sadly, at that time, I had to decline the scholarship as I was a single mum with three young children.

It was that scholarship offer, however, that did inform me on universities/colleges around the world that formed partnership programs. From what I learned, … Continue reading

Or is there?
