For 2008 School Outreach Winner Sandra Burns Thomson, it started as a way to join her young son in the classroom. When she volunteered to present a careers in business course to his 6th grade class, she added translation and interpreting to the lessons. To illustrate localization, for example, the class explored McDonald’s websites around the world. In Cyprus the menu included a special Easter meal; in the Middle East, a lamb sandwich called the McArabia. Sandra plans to do it again. “I’ll be in my daughter’s classroom this year or next just because it’s so much fun.”
