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.
