I am 5 days away from my first day in Costa Rica, where I will be completing my student teaching requirements for my BA diploma in K-12 Visual Arts Education. I am most definitely excited for this next step in my life and this experience but I am a bit anxious about my proficiency in Spanish. I will be teaching ESL, Science, Math Games, and Swimming/Field Games to 4th-6th grade students in Atenas, CR. I am just not fluent whatsoever in English. I have been told that this will not be a problem because the Principal at the school I am working in wants us to only speak in English but I want to get as much out of this experience as possible. I would like to come home and be speaking Spanglish for the rest of my life. We will just have to see how things go. I will be updating my blog as often as possible!
