Today we are 52 kids and countless number of teachers and families tying to express how thankful they feel for such an amazing experience.
As we say goodbye after four heavenly weeks together I am so proud of what our two schools have accomplished. Thirty years ago neither Getxo nor Scituate High could have imagined such a strong bond.
This cultural exchange and language immersion is a life-changing experience for the families, the teachers and, especially, the students. We all learn so much about each other, the world and our languages. Our students now understand the joy of exploration and adventure. They have been motivated for years to learn a new language with the hope of participating on the Getxo-Scituate exchange.
I don't think they knew how much fun they would have and how much love they would feel.
For me, this has, undoubtedly been the best of my teaching career.
Hugs and kisses to all!
