Our summer interns are here! Keep up-to-date with new posts from Christina, Michelle, Grace, Karianne, Juliana, and Rebecca over the next month! Our first guest post comes to you from Karianne:
Today we went into the Guatemalan middle schools and taught English
to 7th and 8th graders in Cam's class. As expected the kids are
playful, lively, and gracious. A lot of them really do care about
learning English which is exciting to see.
Even though it has only been two days, our group has bonded a
significant amount and I can tell we are going to keep making incredible
memories. I have been humbled in this short time by the attitude of
the Guatemalans. Most of them seem incredibly content and happy
with their lifestyle. Coming from America where I am blessed with
convenience and luxury, I assumed that the Guatemalans would also prefer
this lifestyle, but I don´t think that is the case. There is
definitely something to learn from their simple,
hardworking, content way of living. Having that mindset really does
change the next month for me. in terms of thinking, teaching and
learning. So excited for what is to come!
