Two Rubgy workshops (with 80 students each), one hip-hop dance class, ten meet-and greets, one stereotypes activity, a dozen sessions of one fantastic English class featuring Shakira (thanks to the lesson planning of the incredible Laura Mizuha, English fellow in Salgueiro, PE) and a history lecture by Chelsea– our week at the Salgueiro Campus of the IF-Sertão Pernambucano was a busy one. Check out my FB album for pictures of the week (click here for pics from the classroom and click here for Rugby shots) and tag yourselves a vontade (as you please).
The post was delayed while waiting for student feedback, but here it is at last-in English and Portuguese. Read over the student and staff responses, and you can see what a big difference one week can make!
If I had to invent a perfect work week, this would be it. I adored every second.
How does a week like this happen? Start with a visionary research coordinator (Clovis Ramos, Professor of Irrigation) (note – this could be YOU), add two very dedicated English teachers (Roberta Godoy and Josenildo Forte) to organize the schedule and help facilitate the classes, a wonderfully dynamic PE teacher (Marcio Gondim) and a campus full of students and staff eager to help and to learn. So, I know you’re all wondering – where will the next week be?
…You tell me!
This is an open invitation for all interested parties to please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you, too, would like a fun-filled, tailored, English inspiring day or week at your school! I would LOVE to hear from you.
