Rikaki in Majol: Teaching in the RMI
Taylor Lascko wasn’t sure what to expect when moving to the Marshall Islands, but anticipated enacting a lot of change. At the end of the year, she realized she was actually the one who changed, and she is now more patient and worries less. Finally, I learned to adopt the Marshallese phrase, “jab inepata”. This means, “don’t worry.” I started to realize that even the smallest things that I did impacted my students. Little things like giving someone a hug who was having a rough day or simply acknowledging a lonely student and talking to them or encouraging everyone to try hard even when they thought they could not do something.
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.
