International Learning Experiences - Monday July 7

Monday morning, we awoke early to get ready for our first day in the schools.  Meredith and I arrived at Colegio Nuestra Senora del Carmen school in Miraflores district.  We were warmly welcomed by the Principal Ms. Soberon, the staff, teachers and students at the school. The hospitality and genuine thoughtfulness for our visit was heartwarming.  We spent our time with the English teachers of the 5th grade students.  The students had great questions and responses to our questions of them.  Their natural curiosity and willingness to teach us about their school, community, local foods, and the World Cup made for great conversations.  It was inspiring to watch the teachers with the children at the school and the respect that the students have for their teachers.  In all, we had a great day and look forward to our field trip with 1/2 of the 5th grade tomorrow. 

More photos and a blog from the leadership group will be ready by tomorrow.  Stay tuned, and thanks for following our blog!
