English Teaching Program

The mission of The Rose Education Foundation is to provide an excellent education based on sound moral principles that allow students from all socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds to obtain good jobs and prepare to be Guatemala's future leaders.

The Foundation’s schools use local bilingual Guatemalan teachers and native English-speaking teachers to provide high-quality English classes for their students. Our Guatemala English Teaching Experience allows native English-speaking teachers to come and donate from 6 weeks to 10 months of their time teaching English in Guatemala. We are currently accepting applications for the 2012 school year.

"Guatemala is the most beautiful place in the world. I spent 2008 teaching the preschool, kindergarten, first, second, and third -graders in Colegio Mesoamericano Momostenango. They learned English, and I learned patience, lesson planning techniques, and presentation skills; and also developed an immense love for the people of this country. In addition to teaching five classes, the school involved me in a few other projects; such as painting a mural on playground wall, reorganizing the library, and interviewing the economically-struggling students and their families in order to create a web page to find sponsors for these children. Living with a host family was the perfect situation for me because it gave me a chance to experience true Guatemalan culture, and I got to practice my Spanish. During vacations and on weekends I traveled to ruins, beaches, natural springs, jungles and lakes, bought souvenniers and took thousands of pictures. This year in Guatemala has changed my life, and I've been able to influence the lives of over two hundred children. To anyone searching for an opportunity to serve, an adventure, or both, I recommend working for Colegio Mesoamericano!"  -Leah Anderson
