The event had been put together by Mr. Scott, who stated that the whole event went well and that the kids from Lincoln and the soccer team had a great time. People asked questions, ate food, and we got a look into another culture. The soccer team said that everyone was friendly and welcoming, and they noted that they were surprised by the close relationship between staff and students. They mentioned that the teachers tended not to engage each other and their students back in Denmark. The team also noted teachers such as Mr. Kim, Ms. Knecht, Mr. Alter and Mr. Lee for being particularly interesting in terms of their relationships with students and fellow teachers.

 

This whole visit was fun and educational, but also brought to light some of the things that have been going on in our country. The team coach Zobayer Nader who is of muslim descent said that he was pulled aside twice on their trip over by airport security. The team had visited at an inopportune time; right as the executive order had just been passed, preventing people from islam and other countries  entry into the us. This is an unfortunate thing to have happened and our sympathies go out ot the team for the inconvenience, but we are happy they had made it to their game and we wish them good luck on their game.
