Program Reviews:
Ashley Noel Layman, Spring Semester 2015 Participant
This experience greatly prepared me to teach ESL students! I also learned so much about the Dominican culture, which will be very beneficial if I have Dominican students in my future classroom, which is very likely in Florida. Moreover, the DR is a beautiful country! I had many chances to explore it with my roommates and other teachers. As far as the school I was at, it is amazing! The faculty at Santiago Christian School are very friendly and were always willing to help me when needed. I highly recommend this trip!!!
