Three Cups of Tea

Learn what one retired high school teacher is doing to spread the word about international understanding in local New England schools.

By Randall Richards
When Frank Hammond, of New London New Hampshire, USA,  becomes passionate about something, he gets involved with no reservations.  A long-time contributor to various community projects, a popular and effective high school teacher, and former Executive Director of the  Lake Sunapee Protective Association, Hammond recently read the New York Times Bestseller  Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson, and was motivated to get the book in front school children in the region. One of the strategies, he mentions  “is to teach kids empathy skills, i.e., listening to others and building healthy relationships both at home and abroad with foreign cultures.”  Learn more by watching the interview below…


Editor’s Note: Frank Hammond was my 8th grade home-schoolroom teacher in Sunapee, NH.  He was a great teacher, and left a big impression on my me, and I’m sure on my fellow classmates as well. If his  Facebook “friends count” is any gauge, he’s still just as popular as ever with alumni. Thanks for the interview Frank!
