After some technical issues, here’s a report from the team!
We can’t believe Emily and Charlotte leave in less than two weeks! Sorry our blog is a little out of date, but we have been experiencing some technical difficulties.
We love teaching the students at Fisher’s. It is amazing how different all of our classes are, and it is fun to see how quickly they all learn. We attended our first staff meeting last week, which was a great opportunity to get to know the other teachers better. We also learned a lot of different teaching techniques from being able to sit in on some classes as well. While we mostly teach 4-12 year olds, we get to teach a class called ACCESS with 16-20 year olds.
Even though it can get pretty hot here, it is still fun to explore the streets in our downtime. We are trying to be as adventurous as possible when choosing places to eat, and on occasion we meet some pretty interesting people (who try and be our tour guide). Going to the beach and exploring some of the markets are also fun.
Lastly, we are really excited about Elissa and Jane arriving! It is so much fun to hang out with them and listen to their great advice. We are hopefully going to have a fun celebration tomorrow for the 4th! We also made some new friends from church, and have loved spending time with them.
Sorry to cram so much into one post! Hopefully more details and more pictures will come later!
