GVC Program Manager

I am pleased to announce that Janet Barnstable has been named as the new Director of the Global Virtual Classroom Program. Janet has participated in the GVC programs since its inception in 1996. She recently retired from teaching after 48 years. For the past 18 years she was with Percy Julian Middle School in the Oak Park Illinois School District 97.

We look forward to working with Janet and know that the teachers and students from around the world will benefit from her knowledge and experience gained over the past 14 years participating in the GVC program. Join me in welcoming Janet and please call upon her for any questions, suggestions or comments you might have.

Her new GVC email address is:

We also wish to thank Charlie Elsey for his successful management of the GVC program for the 2009/10 school year. He was able to provide leadership of the program along with his other duties as a fulltime middle school teacher in Sarasota, FL.

As a reminder, if you have not signed up for the GVC for the next school year, please be sure to complete the online registration form found at the following link:

I look forward to your participation in the GVC once again this year. It is only through your dedication and effort that the program continues to be a success and a real global leader in online learning experiences for students from around the world.
