Bart and I delivered two workshops on how to use social media in the classroom and for professional development, which was a topic of one of our previous learning events. During my Fellowship I delivered five webinars for Croatian teachers. The webinars were very wellattended and it was a huge pleasure for me to share my newly-gained knowledge with so many enthusiastic teachers from Croatia. prize for my eTwinning project Coursera Kids. My project partner from Greece, Lina Kalliontzi, also won the first prize in Greece! The Prize ceremony was held in Zagreb and I "Webexed" in to give a short presentation about the project. My headteacher, Ms. Svea Bielen was there to receive the award and take it to my school and to my students. In June 2015 I successfully completed my studies and returned home ready to continue sharing my knowledge with eTwinners. Another great event was the meeting of Croatian and Slovenian eTwinning ambassadors in Zagreb and again I joined them via Webex. The most emotional and the most cherished moment of my American eTwinning year was winning COMET, the Croatian national eTwinning 43
