BHS Students Meet ‘Face to Faith’ with Global Delegation

Jodi Ide’s classroom on Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014 seemed more like a meeting of the United Nations than a high school social studies class.

Students in Ide’s Face to Faith class at Brighton High were visited by 12 foreign guests who came to the United States at the invitation of the U.S. Department of State.

The visitors, who hailed from such far-flung locations as Algeria, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia, and Yemen, are traveling the country, seeking positive dialogue and cultural exchanges with American teachers and teens.

Aided by translators, the students and the foreign guests, who were part of the State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program, had a robust hour-long discussion about such topics as education, women’s rights, and the role of faith in culture and government.

The students also shared smiles with the delegation – joking, laughing and posing for photographs (and even a few “selfies”) for Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram.

After the delegation had left the school, Brighton Principal Charisse Hilton told Ide and her students that the translators had commented to her that the level of discussion was among the best they’d experienced in their travels. She reported being told that the students’ questions and comments were “college-level.”  

“We know we have awesome teachers and great students,” Hilton said.

Board member Kim Horiuchi also attended the event and gave the group a warm welcome. “What a great experience for our students to learn about different cultures and religions and people,” she said.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
