The past two weeks that I had teaching were incredible. I had no idea that it would be such a rewarding experience. On the first day I was extremely hesitant after seeing the cabins we were going to be living in for two weeks and was very nervous to teach. As the week went on I became more comfortable with cold showers and began to love the kids. Every day the kids learned more and more and got excited about what we were doing. It was amazing to see that what we were teaching was clicking with them and they wanted to learn and explore more. Each day the kids became more attached to us and it was so cute to see them in the halls and get a bear hug. Kids who I didn't spend much time with were giving me long goodbye hugs and it made me realize that I was making a bigger impact on their lives than I thought. At the beginning of the trip I would have never thought I would have been sad to leave Cinnamon Bay, but it really was a bittersweet goodbye. I am so grateful that I could come on this trip and have such a meaningful experience.
