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!

Ronda and Malaga

Yesterday we travelled with our group of students at the center and a professor to Ronda. It was a bumpy and nauseatting ride. We however loved that Ronda was about 5 degrees colder than Sevilla. The sun was just as strong however. We had a tour guide and he took us to see all of the sites including the new bridge that was built over the gorge. We then walked all the way downhill and saw two bridges  that were even older. The most exciting part was seeing the arab baths. The baths were cold to sit in and learn about history. In reality though, the baths were places were women could talk about everything without men seeing them. They were also based off of Roman baths and there were three different baths one hot, one tepid, and one cold. They could go back and forth as many times as they wanted.

We then had to walk all the way uphill (hard and harder for T when she was sick and coughing). We made it though and walked through the town. It was so gorgeous. The end of our tour ended in the plaza de torros. It is the oldest one in all of Spain and has rock used everywhere from the gorge. We saw the museum and then went to a froyo place before we went on a bus with Emily to Malaga. The hotel was great (wifi and air conditioning). hehehe
