I hope you are doing well! I want to let you know about an amazing opportunity I have to travel with a team of teachers to the Guatemala this summer!
We will be preparing and presenting professional development workshops for teachers who work with students from two schools located in areas of extreme need. Children in poverty face unique challenges. We continue to study the most recent research to help us prepare appropriate lessons to address the needs identified by the teachers in Guatemala. As we spend time with educators and community leaders, we will gain an understanding of the challenges they face and learn from their experiences. I look forward to this incredible service learning opportunity.
Since we will be learning about the history and culture of Guatemala and visiting some of their prominent historical sites, I will also be looking for ways that I can bring this experience back to teachers.
Each team member has been asked to raise $2800 to cover the expenses for this serving opportunity. I am wondering if you would like to be a part of this effort and help our team raise these funds? Because this is a volunteer service trip facilitated by the non-profit organization INGAGE Unlimited, all donations are tax deductible and can be made online at this website. Just select the Guatemala Education team. I will send out an email following my trip. I’m sure I’ll be eager to share my experience!
Please email me if you have any questions!
Thank you so much!
