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!

Last Week with our class

This week we started wrapping things up. We said goodybe to T's intercambio, had our final exam on Monday, and we then taught our last lesson on Thursday. On Thursday we also had a performance where we had to dance with the kids to the songs Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Shine, and Tonights Going to be a Good Night. We all had been learning the moves to the dances for the past three weeks and it was cool to see how much they learned to present to their parents. They still needed some assistance so we danced with them (as the dance teacher instructed). Even though all of the other children who presented were older, our group was the best!

After the presentation we ate some Tapas with some neighbors and watched all the people walk to the mini Feria that is going on in Triana. All the people came out of hiding :) We then had our last day of classes today. We received letters from the students and a fan from the teacher we worked with. We will miss all the kids and it was a great learning experience. To wrap up our final day everyone in the program got to eat lunch together close to the center.

Tirion decided that since it was cooler only like 97 degrees we should go tan next to the river. It was great and actually kind of frescito. Tonight we are spending our last night with our Senora Mercedes talking about her fan collection and children. We will say goodbye to her on Sunday while also introducing her to our parents.
