Mrs. Neumann’s World Issues class had the opportunity to video chat with Fernando Bolivar, a Venezuelan native, today in class! The students have been studying the history of and crisis in Venezuela so this was a really cool opportunity to speak with someone who has first hand knowledge. Thank you Fernando!
