A smile says more than a thousand words - I literally experienced that every day during my time working with La Esperanza Granada. Even though teaching was tough sometimes and it was hard keeping the kids under control, I always came home with a happy face on. Once the kids realize that you like working with them, they will give you so much in return.
It feels really good to know that you can actually change something in those little people's lives and you can see them appreciate it. Every day my students would say 'Hola' and 'Adiós' to me with a hug and a big smile on their faces. This picture really stays in my memory.
