A Day in the Life of a Mayatan Teacher

  1. Hola,

    My name is Brenna. I am 27 years old and a graduate from Temple University with a Bachelors in Psychology and Certificate in Spanish (My Spanish is not great, but I can get by) :) . I saw via your website you were still recruiting volunteers for this upcoming school year. I was wondering if you could send me some more information, I am very interested in the Kindergarten Section B position.

    I have previously been a teacher's assistant for a preschool in Pennsylvania and team leader for Eastern State Penitentiary Museum. Right now I am a full-time nanny, and will be leaving this family when the youngest reaches preschool age at the end of September. I was wondering if there is any flexibility with the start date?
