We had the weekend to get settled into our apartment and acquaint ourselves with the city of Cochabamba before beginning to teach on Monday. It’s been great getting to know our class of sixteen grade 5 students and slowly build a relationship with them. Outside of the classroom we have been focused on studying the curriculum guide and planning lessons for the coming year. As we assess where our class is academically, we have also been able to strategize how to better support each student and best meet the needs of the class as a whole. We are certainly going through a learning curve but we’re really enjoying each day in the classroom and are excited to grow alongside our students.
