Bunsen Burners in Bolivia

Moles. Explosions. Colored flames. I (Lindsay) am thinking all about Chemistry today! After thinking and praying about teaching over the past few months, I committed to teach Chemistry for the 2010-2011 school year at Carachipampa Christian School.

The school serves children in missionary families and is run by the SIM mission. All of the teachers are from English-speaking countries and all classes are taught in English, although there are a fair number of Bolivian students. I’m really excited to finally put all of my training to use and can’t wait to start planning for the school year!

School begins August 9th, and I will probably be teaching three days a week – two double periods and one single period each week – to allow time for labs and to cut down on my commute (the school is a 45 minute bus ride from our home). I’m a little nervous about being in front of my very own classroom, but I’m hoping the nerves will die as classes get rolling!

p.s. The textbook we’re using is 2 years younger than me!
