Estoy Aqui

I have safely arrived in Guatemala.  I will be here for two weeks to tour, teach in a local school and practice my Spanish skills.  I will begin my official teaching assignment tomorrow.

Since my group's first weekend here was unstructured, I decided to get a head start on teaching.  When I visited this town last summer, I made some connections with the locals and acquired many new Facebook followers.  Through social media, I learned that English classes for adults were recently established and volunteered my skills there.  I met over thirty individuals who signed up for the classes, the majority of those being fellow educators.  They were a delightful group to work with and I look forward to going back next week.

This year's teaching assignment is at a private school.  I am eager to find out how it compares to the public school that I taught at last summer.  As I make these observations, I will be sure to share them with you all.  In the meantime, enjoy your summer.  In a few short weeks, it's back to the trenches.
