Joanne has made it to Costa Rica! (an introduction)

by Joanne Appleby

Well, I've made it! I arrived yesterday around noon, and it's like I never left. I just wanted to introduce myself to all of you. I've got a Bachelors in Spanish and just finished getting my Masters in Education to teach Spanish. For awhile I've had the idea of staying in a Spanish-speaking country to improve my Spanish and get experience, and I decided I should do that before I start teaching in the U.S. And what better country that Costa Rica? I studied abroad here for nine weeks in summer of 2003, and I've been wanting to come back ever since. I'm lucky, since right now I'm staying with my host family from that trip until I find a job and an apartment. Since this week is Semana Santa, I'll be getting started on that next week. For now, I'm just catching up and taking it all in. I'd love to get together with the others who are in Costa Rica teaching!
