Guest Speaker: Ann Letsinger
Ann Letsinger is the Lower School String Teacher at The Blake School, Hopkins Campus. Prior to Blake, she was the string director at Mount Kenya Academy (MKA) located in Nyeri, Kenya. During her two-year contract, she traveled several places throughout Kenya, interacting with a wide variety of people. The presentation will focus on the use of space at home, school, and transportation specific to life in Central Kenya. Differences between the Kenyan and American cultures are vast, but we all want the same things from life - food, shelter, health, provide for our families, etc. The presentation will include pictures, video, and a couple performances of traditional Kenyan songs.
