ESL Teacher

What motivates you to work with our program?

My name is Deyanara I am 21 years old. I have been studying English for 5 years at Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Nicaragua (UNAN-Leon). Three months ago, I was looking for a job in order to pay my university, when a friend asked me if I wanted to work as a teacher in a program; I was excited, because I had the opportunity to work in two rural schools imparting math and literature classes and I needed the money, too. At the first time, I was not convinced with the little kids, because I believed that they did not want me, but I was wrong. It was an easy process to get along with the children. During the time, the little kids allowed me to know more about their lives (feelings, emotions, families statuses, family problems, poverty, illnesses, abuses) and it was in that time where I noticed that here is where I have to be, here I can see the worth of my job. I never thought sharing those kind of things with my kids; I never thought being a model for my students. They are my motivation to follow working for a brighter future for them. It is grateful when a mother or father text me or call me to ask for my students. Today I am not just working for money; I am working for my kids, because I know I am changing lives. I feel so glad with this program, because it has helped to me to grow up as a person, today I can say I am a better person. Thanks Unity 4 Orphans.
