Colombia – Day 1

Today we worked at Summit Elementary School and were teacher aids. We divided ourselves and set out to help! Some of the things we got to help with included: tutoring students, making cut outs, organizing teacher items amongst many others! Here is a snapshot of a few of our group’s day:

Dylan G. and I (Riley) helped first grade teachers hang posters and streamers to welcome back a new teacher as she returned to school. We also assisted teachers in their lesson plans for the next day by helping prepare materials and organizing.

Another group, Gavin and Ariel, had the opportunity to help the librarian rotate out the bulletin board and put up new ones. Later they then sorted books and had so much fun!

Dylan R. and Ava hung up posters and spent time with the students in second grade. We all stopped and took a break while enjoying the pizza that was provided for us by a parent. (Thank you so much!) The teachers were all very grateful and thanked us profusely for our work today. Even though we did little things, they had a great impact on the teachers as they could use the time to educate the students and make better use of their time.
