Isabel just called on behalf of the volunteer coordinator at the Copey Learning Center. The English teacher volunteer is leaving in a month and the coordinator was inquiring whether I might be willing to take her place. This volunteer teaches grades 1 to 6 and also adults from what I understand. The parents want their children to learn English and the community has a great deal of respect for teachers, which is nice. It will allow me to meet more people in the larger area of Copey (maybe I'll meet that lady who called the police on me... I'm not bitter). I've never considered myself a teacher, and I have no idea if I'll be any good at it, but I'm certainly willing to give it my best shot. Nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say. Isabel will set up a meeting with the coordinator this Sunday and we'll go from there.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
