Bulletin Board Escula Hacienda
We received a warm welcome during our visit to                                     Escuela Hacienda in Jacó, Costa Rica.


Escuela CR

I learned that teachers in Costa Rica work very hard! Many teach two grade levels during the day, typically 7:00-11:30am with one grade, and then 12:30-5:00pm with another grade. One teacher shared that most of her planning time is done at home and that teachers attend classes on Saturdays. I truly enjoyed and learned from our visit to Escuela Hacienda Jaco.
