Hello! I’m Danah and I am one of the two new conversation assistants here to speak English with the children at Dr Seres! 🙂
Just as Sophie (the other conversation assistant) I have been here since the 2nd of October and I will be here until the end of the school year in June 2018! So far, Sophie and I have been going around to each of the classes and introducing ourselves to the children with a presentation about ourselves and where we come from. For me, I come from Dallas, Texas (yeehaa! howdy y’all!). I am also Lebanese (my parents were born and raised there), so I have been speaking and showing pictures of both to the children!
Living in Alpicat has been great so far. The school and my host families have made me feel very welcome, and I look forward to spending the next 8 months here!
If you see me around, say hello! Or howdy! I’ll respond to both… 🙂
