From Lauren ’15
This morning when I walked into my classroom, I was greeted by my teacher who had made me two beautiful bracelets the night before. I find it very exciting and interesting how the people here love making and giving you gifts despite their lack of money or basic items for their homes. Tania told me she would teach me how to make the bracelets if I would teach her how to make snowflakes out of construction paper. She said that even though it doesn’t snow here, she can still put them in her classroom to represent geometric shapes. Tania, is so cool. She’s really funny and isn’t mean when I don’t know a Spanish word.
Today, Hector–the troublemaker of the class–started running around and tearing all the girls papers. I found it difficult to make him stop for two reasons; 1) He literally doesn’t listen to a word anyone says and 2) the language barrier. Eventually I got him to sit down. Thank God!
