In a volunteer's words - Ecuador

I think about my experiences in the schools and in Ecuador itself probably every day! Hope all's still going really well out there. I wish I could be back there! But it has helped me decide that I want to be a primary teacher so I'm applying to begin my PGCE Primary with Spanish in September 2011 and I'm going to get a TEFL qualification so that hopefully I can end up in South America some day. I'm also studying a Spanish A level along with my final year so my experience out there really has shaped a lot of what I'm doing and I’m going to do. Thanks for that.

From Annie Clark, Ecuador volunteer June-August 2010
