In Santa Maria, thanks to you, we currently have three teachers working with the children Doreen, Santiago and Elvia. Both in the morning and afternoon our three teachers run classes to reinforce what the children are learning in their national school and helping them with their impossible homework!
Elvia has been working in the school for two years and supports the youngest of the children to learn their basic ABCs. Santiago has been the passion behind Santa Maria with Doreen since we opened our doors in 2004, running the projects and now focusing his energy on helping the older children with their homework. Doreen teaches the middle classes of varying levels, breaking them down into ability groups for their classes.
What our three wonderful teachers have in common is a passion for their work. Whether they are reciting the alphabet over and over again, cleaning a child's nose, comforting a child that has just grazed their knee and explaining how the universe works, you know they do it with all their passion and love, to help theie community and country. As Doreen says, "
They are lovely kids and it is amazing to see them everyday, trying to learn new things!".
Santa Maria celebrated a wonderful nine years of educating children a little while ago and that has been down to your long-term support as well, together we are constructing a future. Thank you.
