  7. Belize My Kitchen

    I loved my li wooden casita in the village of Cristo Rey. I did a lot of chores in that sink, overlooking the yard of my neighbors who owned the casita. I could throw food scraps to the chickens from that window as I washed dishes, catch a breeze from the Mayan Mountains as I scrubbed my clothes or spy a Toucan flying by as I brushed my teeth.

  8. Belize Art projects

    I worked on a Jumpstart English program, with the goal of teaching preschool english to youth in my village. I collaborated with other volunteers and I took on the task of organizing art projects for the kids. I enjoyed coming up with new ideas and then seeing the kids experiement with the supplies I provided. In this particular project, we were trying out different stamping and printmaking supplies using tempera paint. I couldn't resist trying out a few things, too!

  9. Belize Jumpstart

    For my secondary project, I taught preschool English to 4 and 5 year old Spanish-speaking children to prepare them for starting school in an English-speaking school system in Belize. I snapped this photo as they were listening to a tape recording of themselves singing or talking. I found that the kids enjoyed singing songs and talking into the recorder as a way to improve their English.
