Mrs. Graciela Sodero from the Mariano Moreno School in Vera y Pintado, Argentina is visiting Hannibal High School from October 19 – November 4, 2009 as part of an American Council of Educational Administrator Exchange Program.

The Vera y Pintado School has approximately 90 students with a faculty of 24. Dr. Brian Schmitt, Principal of Hannibal High School, is one of 25 administrators nationwide selected to participate in the exchange. Dr. Schmitt will go to Argentina in July 2010 to learn about Argentina’s school system and to complete the exchange.

The goal of the program is to share systems, curriculum, and best practices between the schools. Another goal of the program is to develop a sister school relationship that will allow the schools to communicate and support each other. Mrs. Sodero has been observing different classes in Hannibal and surrounding schools and learning about the school system here in the United States.
