We’ve gone sight seeing by going to Jarabacoa, el Momumento and La plaza de Duarte.
We’ve learned about the culture going to the La oficina de tourismo, El centro Leon and El sendero de cacao.
We’ve learned about history by watching "En el tiempo de las mariposa" about the Mirabal Sisters that fought against the Trujillo’s regime.
This is the beginning of a wonderful adventure that will leave them with memories of a lifetime.
Hi, my name is Shannel Julius. I'm from Brooklyn, New York and very excited and grateful to be a Program Leader for Session 1 in Santiago, DR. I'm excited for the food, to be in the Caribbean and to use Spanish every day.
I graduated from the University of Scranton with a Bachelor in Hispanic Studies & History and Minor in Philosophy. I worked as a Spanish and History tutor in the University’s Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence.After graduating, I took 2 years off to gain experience and grow as a person. I spent those 2 years in a classroom, not furthering my education, but contributing to someone else’s. The first year was spent as a Language and Culture assistant in Madrid, Spain; helping students with their study of the English language. During the second year, I worked as a math tutor for ESL students, Brooklyn, NY.
My hobbies including studying languages, traveling, and watching horror movies.
