Teaching in the RMI

Teaching in the RMI was amazing but definitely challenging. The school I was placed at provided no support for discipline or advice of any sort. The WorldTeach program itself was not too bad, but one thing that I struggled with was the fact that the people making decisions for the RMI volunteers and giving advice to the RMI volunteers had never been to the country or really lived there.

Regardless of how awful my students could be sometimes, I fell in love with them! The Marshallese people are very welcoming, and they truly cherish their guests. Overall, I think the experience was worthwhile. I definitely learned a lot about myself and how far I can be pushed.

A breathtaking summer

I volunteered at the Mwadikange SS School in Ondobe, Ohangwena, Namibia. It was a incredible experience, filled with so many memories. The in-country support is so personal, and the relationship I made with my fellow volunteers will influence me in ways I can never repay. WorldTeach does an incredible job of understanding volunteers in Namibia, especially summer ones. Whenever I had an issue, my field director was there. She pushed me to do even better and to live more, instead of just coddling me and comforting me. She provided important wisdom and stories that made me want to do better as a teacher and a person. Most importantly, the teachers, staff, and learners that I lived with for two and half months will always have a profound impact on me. The best experience of my life!

A one-of-a-kind experience to be adopted by a new community

I was teaching in the outer islands at Manu'a High School. I was graciously adopted by my village and the entire island made us feel welcomed with great feasts and celebrations galore. Living in the outer islands can be tough, but it is an absolutely amazing experience that you just cannot fully get other people to understand even the volunteers on the main island.
The WT staff was very professional and we had a wonderful field director who took care of us as if we were part of her own family. I am proud of my service with WorldTeach at Manu'a High School, Ta'u, American Samoa.
Sagaula Pride!

A year in Ecuador

I absolutely loved my experience as a WorldTeach volunteer in Ecuador. The Field Directors at the time I was there were very supportive and gave us a very thorough orientation. I loved the country, and in some respects I felt more at home there than I do in the U.S. The community I lived in was very warm and generous, and I felt I made many lifelong friends there. It was a transformative experience to live in a society that is so community-oriented, and I think of a quote from Jared Diamond's book when I think of my experience: "Being in.... is like seeing the world briefly in vivid colors, when by comparison the world elsewhere is gray.” The country is not without its health and safety concerns, and you definitely have to take precautions, but I felt that WorldTeach prepared us for how to deal with many of those problems, and the Field Directors were there for me when some minor problems arose. The country has seen some major transformations in the last few years, however, and my impression is that some of the health and safety concerns may be diminishing. The only area I felt I could have gotten more support for from WorldTeach was my allergies - I think WorldTeach needed to be more sympathetic to volunteers who have allergies and prepare us for what it would be like to have food allergies in Ecuador. Also giving an orientation to the host families about volunteers with allergies would have been helpful, especially since volunteers generally eat with the family. Their policies may have changed, however, since I was there a few years ago. I would wholeheartedly recommend the organization and living in Ecuador.

World Teach

World Teach China is a very well supported program. Supplying you with visas and training, unlike some other programs. It is a program where what you put into it is what you get out of it. It is very easy to get to your site and just teach everyday and be satisfied with that. If you want to get more involved that is all up to you! As a well established program there are fewer problems when dealing with the schools. I recommend this program, it helped me go abroad for the first time and gave me the strength and training to stay abroad!
