Just got back from a trip to Spain with 11 students and the other Spanish teacher.
This is hands-down, the MOST REWARDING THING I’VE DONE AS A TEACHER.
I really loved sharing what I knew about Spain from my travels and learning new things with the girls as well. Despite taking one girl to a hospital, one girl having her phone brazingly stolen from her hand, and a girl leaving her wallet at a restaurant to never find again, it was an amazing trip. I’ve also never had so many parents so say many kind words, nor received so many hugs from parents.
We went to:
– Toledo (where we staid)
– Consuegra + Los Molinos de Don Quijote
– El Escorial
– El Valle de los Caídos
I was too scared to do a trip like this last year, and truthfully I only tagged along while the teacher retiring planned this one. BUT, this trip persuaded me to continue bringing students abroad.
