Isanti Principal Mark Ziebarth learns about Argentina culture through principal exchange program
For two weeks this summer, Isanti principal Mark Ziebarth learned about life and culture in Argentina.
Ziebarth, principal of Isanti Intermediate School and School for All Seasons, spent July 24 through Aug. 6 in Argentina through a principal exchange program through the Fulbright Commission.
While in Argentina, Ziebarth stayed with the Merlo family that included Jacinto, Sofia, Daniel, Liliana and Francis. Liliana, a vice principal at Felipe Olmos Primary School, stayed with the Ziebarth family in Cambridge for three weeks in October 2011.
“I had never been to Argentina before so I was excited to be offered this opportunity,” Ziebarth said. “Overall it was a great experience and I can apply again in five to six years to go somewhere else. As a principal, I learned a lot during my time down there that I can apply into our schools.” See more in Editor Rachel Kytonen’s Isanti County News story.
