It is now deep into the summer break and we hope everyone is enjoying it and having fun! If you haven't seen it already on our social media, we wrapped up our European tour a couple of weeks ago and are now back in the US visiting with family and friends.
The past 9 months were fantastic and we met with several schools and their administrators as well as language centers, exploring various opportunities. We've learned so much, which has made us continually refocus ourselves and the programs we want to run.
One of the biggest developments is that we are now headed to Guatemala! I (Billy) have accepted a position with Antigua International School, which is located about an hour west of Guatemala City. This is an incredible opportunity at a school that is rapidly growing and ready to experiment for the benefit of their students and teachers alike. Plus, Antigua (a UNESCO heritage site) is a beautiful location with many possibilities for a new program. We fully anticipate putting together something exciting for summer 2019 so make sure to follow along as things develop!
In the meantime, relax and take some time out to focus on you. You deserve it after a long school year! But do us a favor, too. When you're attending those mandatory Professional Development sessions coming up, remember Lessons From Travel. When your alarm goes off early one morning and you trudge off to your school or drive to a PD seminar, remember Lessons From Travel. When you begin to zone out on the speaker and feel that urge to check your phone, remember Lessons From Travel. Remember Lessons From Travel because you could be earning those PD hours while having an exciting adventure vacation that will help bring your classes to another level!
