Final Reflections on ESL

May 20th, 2011 by Rebecca Jones · No Comments · Uncategorized

Mimi and I were both a little disappointed that we didn’t get to spend much time teaching English. But I really thought that the opportunity to get out of the Oberlin bubble once a week and talk to people whose days involve something other than sitting in a classroom was really interesting and really opened my eyes to the existence of other communities around Oberlin. It’s my first year at Oberlin, so I really didn’t know anything about the area other than the college. The first private reading meeting that I went to surprised me; I really didn’t know that there was such a large migrant population here. I think that going to Willoway once a week really helped me locate myself within the community, and to have more appreciation for what it means to live in rural Ohio.
