Pura Vida!

Welcome to the Calgary Serves International- Costa Rica Blog!

For those new to the site my name is Laura Taylor. I am a first year soon to be second year U of C Education student. This past reading week I particpated in the New Orleans Calgary Serves program and I am lucky to be participating in this upcoming Costa Rica trip. What excites me most about this trip is the potential to work with an elementary school on Chira Island! I am a bit nervous about the language barrier and of course the BUGS but overall I think it will be a great learning experience. Not only will I learn about the community of Chira Island but I will also learn a lot about myself since I will be out of my comfort zone!

Keep you posted once I’m in Costa Rica!

Adios Amigos!

    For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, the Faculty of Education recently ran a great profile of Laura Taylor and the Calgary Serves project in New Orleans – highlighting how Laura tied her trip into the curriculum for her young learners. http://www.educ.ucalgary.ca/node/474
