"Knowledge is power." This simple quote defines one of the most debated and institutional topics...education. No matter what country you are from, what your goals are, or how to set out to accomplish them, education will help set you on the path to success. During our first teaching day, I had the opportunity to teach in the community of Red Bank. Approaching the school, I had an expectation of what was to come; however, our visual imaginations never match with reality. The school was one building surrounded by dirt and grass. There were 5 class rooms that contained around 20 desks. The inside of the classroom had walls covered with posters about many topics including: dental anatomy, digestive tract, order of operations, and a map of the world. During our first program, JA, it was hard to get the kids to open up about bullying. Many of them felt intimidated or shy to talk about such an important subject. Toward the end of the program, they began to come out of their shell and participate in the activities. We followed the JA program with the project designed by the Communication team. This project worked well with keeping the kids active and engaged; however, we discovered that no matter what country you are in, kids will be kids. They began to get distracted and we worked to maintain order in the classroom. This problem was exemplified by the teachers absence throughout most of the day. After finishing with Communication, we moved onto my project....the digestive system. I was excited to take on the challenge of controlling the classroom and presenting the information in a way in which the kids could retain. I have always had a desire to teach and this experience allowed me to test my flexibility and adaptability. Making the GI system interesting can be a challenge, but my fellow nursing students and myself, met this challenge head on. Whether it be a simple game of GI fun, oatmeal in pantyhose, or GI beach ball fun, knowledge is a universal concept. During this experience, I learned not only about the culture of this great place, but a lot about myself. This day is the first of many to come. I am confident that each day will bring a new learning opportunity and a change to test my boundaries and push me into trying new things.
