A group of elementary school students learned about the country of Bulgaria Friday and their teacher came from thousands of miles away.
A representative from Charlottesville’s sister city of Pleven gave kindergarten students at Greenbrier a personal lesson in Bulgarian geography. She also taught them about the Bulgarian alphabet and read stories in her native tongue.
“It’s so important for them to appreciate people from different parts of the world. We have so many students who have come to us from all over the world, but we celebrate those differences,” said Greenbrier Principal Faye Giglio.
Students at Greenbrier have had visitors from all the continents and from almost every state.
