My Fulbright in Guatemala has been a truly significant, learning experience from both a professional and personal standpoint. I was once again challenged to re-examine my values and principles as a teacher and world citizen. I realize now-even more so-that teaching language is my calling. It is the way I can help people reach their goals and better their lives. I leave this country with a special appreciation and genuine love for its people and their very rich complex culture and history. These are the benefits I can pin down now; however, it will take years for me to fully understand and fathom the yields I have gained as a Fulbrighter in Guatemala.
