Swearing in! 

This past Wednesday was filled with so many emotions. I woke up in my training village, brought my bags to the curb and said my goodbyes to my host family.  I was sworn in as an official Peace Corps Volunteer. I said hello to my new host family and was greeted with homemade bread and compot. It was a crazy day and I just can’t believe it was all real. 

Școala Practică

So I made another vlog! These past two weeks have been crazy and my mind is swirling so I haven’t had time to sit down and put my thoughts into words yet. As the end of PST gets closer, I am having a harder and harder time believing that it’s almost over. In the meantime, enjoy this video! 

Student Teaching: Day 1

Today was the day!

For the past few weeks we have had a pretty regular schedule: language class in the morning and then tech class in the afternoon. Today, however, we started practice school. This week, one of our partner teachers joined us in our village and we got to practice creating a lesson plan, teaching in front of real Moldovan students, and giving each other feedback. Today was hard, full of Romanian, but it was so amazing. Next week our second partner teacher will come and we will teach a totally different lesson.

I just wanted to give you all a taste of what we experienced today. A more thought out essay will come after both weeks.
