My major duties were to assist the class by helping the students while doing work, making hand written copies, doing errands, and just helping when I was needed with various things. I also established an adopt a classroom program between the school in the Dominican and a school in Penn Yan, N.Y.
The best aspects were being in another country and experiencing life as an everyday citizen of the Dominican Republic. Also, I loved the kids!
