Clare Kelly Virnoche, Summer 2018 Participant
Getting to interact with children in a variety of different settings was incredibly rewarding. It was fascinating to see the difference between public, private, bilingual, urban, and rural schools.

Jaylyn Dana Jenks, Summer 2016 Participant
I learned that going with the flow is the best way to approach another country, as well as, trying everything! Ask a million questions, practice your Spanish before you go and drink lots of water.

The views were incredible, the food was amazing, but the friendships I made and the knowledge I now have of a different education system are priceless. I would recommend this trip to anyone who can't be gone a full semester or summer. The timing was perfect and while I learned so much, it never felt like work.
