Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

Jerez and other updates

Yesterday we got to go and see a play with our theater class. It was called Bits and was mostly done in a mime format. We really enjoyed seeing a theater and experiencing something that we wouldn't have done otherwise in Spain.

Today we had a short day of classes so we decided to venture one hour south of us to Jerez with a friend.
The train station (had really cool tiles)

 Sandeman Sherry on the left and a picture of the street (they are really well known for their sherry in Jerez). As part of our tour we learned about the history of Sandeman and how they make sherry. Then we tasted it. Honestly we found it kind of gross. The couple we were sitting next to were wine tasters from San Francisco and their recommendation was to wait at least seven more years and try again with a more refined pallet. Maybe that is why all of the people on the tour were at least 10 and at the most 50 years older than we were. :)
 Stork (second one we've seen in Spain)
 Tomorrow we are going with various people from our program to the Algarve peninsula in Portugal. We are hoping that we will get some scenic photos to share.
