Paul Geilenfeldt, Jr., Lakota, is one of the six and is teaching fifth grade. This marks the first time in Minnesota higher education history that undergraduate student teachers have been assigned to a school outside the United States. The students were sent at the request of the American School Foundation of Monterrey. The six, who left for Mexico on Oct. 10, will be teaching in the American School until Dec. 8, when they are scheduled to return to the Mankato State campus. Indications from all points are that the program in Monterrey is progressing in an extremely successful manner. The school population is made up of Mexican and American children. The student teachers are comfortably housed in homes convenient to the school. Some are within walking distance, others are near school transportation routes so that there need be little inconvenience in their getting to their daily work.
