Not the Same Song and Dance
With a limited background in teaching, Starr Smith was unsure how she would do managing a very lively group of students in American Samoa. Although it was challenging, the connections formed between her and her students made it all worth it. So Samoan students are a tough group to control and I found myself yelling far too often. Samoan students are also so easy going and even after a tough session, as they left my room, I heard so many of them saying “Thank you, teacher” and “We are sorry, teacher.” During one art class, I must have gotten more than 20 posters praising me and everything about me.
This is an experience that is going to change you in ways you didn't know possible.
Where We Teach
In 1986, I went to Kenya as the first WorldTeach volunteer. My hope was to bridge the gap between what I studied and the realities of life in the field. That's what WorldTeach was and still is today, we give each and every volunteer teacher an opportunity to link theories with reality and find their own way of narrowing the development gap around the world.
