Senior Valentina Saavedra Expresses Her Servant's Heart
2017 senior Valentina Saavedra writes in about her summer volunteer service project working with young children supported by La Fundacion Loncer in Puerto Colombia, Colombia. This is the town where her grandparents live and mother, CCC counselor, Mrs. Ethel Ricardo grew up.
Before leaving the U.S., Valentina sourced donations and purchased fans for the classroom, school supplies, clothing, healthy snacks, and gifts for the 15 students she taught for two weeks. She introduced them to the English language through her own lesson plans and fun activities. Thank you Valentina for your servant's heart and congrats on your newly discovered love of teaching!
