Antigua: Its Not a Holiday

Posted by Greg on 9:46 am and is Filed under Education, News.

In Antigua 15 UFV students will work along side Antigua teachers to touch the lives of  students, and in return, have their lives touched by them… past students coment on the powerful experiences they have had through working with children, teachers and administrators while delivering lesson plans based on best practices in education in a markedly different culture, with people who have different values and points of reference, and in a school system that is striving to improve the culture, content and delivery of education to those on the island.

The typical day for the student will include catching a bus at 7:20 in the morning, teaching four blocks of physical or health education, arriving home by 5:20, having a few moments to them selves before attending a meeting and lesson planning at 8:00 pm. It is a job – and for many their first full time job in education! For many, this will be some of their first exposure to in classroom teaching in a public school system… an exciting opportunity that also brings with it some healthy nervous tension.

Through the continued support of the University of the Fraser Valley, and the Ministry of Education in Antigua, we are able to offer an extraordinary experience that will help shape student teachers for years to come. Share their experience and feel their passion as you read their stories – come back often, and enjoy the blog linked below.
