Sandra Matoushaya, a friend of Ms. Opdahl, was a special guest in Grade 7 this week while students are engaged in an African Geography block. Ms. Matoushaya grew up in Zimbabwe. Students learned that Zimbabwe is the same size as the state of Montana and has similar weather to Florida (although their seasons are opposite). Ms. Matoushaya spoke Shona, the main language of Zimbabwe, for the class, even though the official language is English. She fielded questions about crops grown, politics, animals, school, and music.




Take a moment to listen to a well-loved Zimbabwean musician, Oliver Mtukudzi, who recently died but is held in the hearts of many Zimbabweans, including Ms. Matoushaya.
