School Days

This past week, the LOEP team was able to spend quite a bit of time in the classrooms at Lott Carey school with both students and teachers. The students will not be in school next week when we are working with the teachers exclusively, so this was a good opportunity for us to do some team teaching with Lott Carey teachers and even substitute teach by ourselves in some instances. I was very pleased to cover some 7th and 8th grade English classes, and Rachel had the chance to show off her science skills in a 5th grade science class as well as 12th grade biology! We had a great time with the students and with the teachers. The school currently has a faculty opening for middle school English and Language Arts. I enjoyed filling in for a few days and got some good laughs from the 8th grade class. Kids are kids are kids are kids - in Liberia, USA, and all over the world! Here are some pics from our teaching days this week.

Two seventh grade students work hard on the vocabulary lesson I gave them in the library on Tuesday.

Fridays begin with a flag raising ceremony that the older students and ROTC lead for the entire student body.

Mr. Appleton's 11th grade biology class models a human cell using students.

Rachel poses with the senior class. They were very excited to have a class picture!

We have been doing some team-building exercises with the students and will continue this work with the teachers next week.
