Shrewsbury- Bob DeCoteau, a former eight-grade Geography teacher with the Shrewsbury Public Schools, presented his two trips to Iran to the seventh-grade students recently at Oak Middle School. He first talked about how he had to get permission to go to Iran through the Pakistani embassy because there isn’t an Iranian embassy in the United States. When asked in a questionnaire what his purpose was for going to Iran, he knew that he would be considered a journalist by the Iranians because he wrote some articles about his past travels, so he answered that he was a journalist, rather than a tourist. When you hear Mr. DeCoteau talk about his travels, you know very quickly that he is not your “average tourist”.
