A year ago, we were approached by Mr. Willy Fluharty, Director of Nexus Global Studies, with a wild idea: create a language exchange in the Lower School by partnering with an orphanage in Nicaragua. Together we, Mrs. Aimee Shenigo (Lower School Spanish Teacher), Ms. Andrea Elliott (Classroom Teacher), and Mrs. Frances Lonergan (Lower School Curriculum Specialist), used our own unique skill sets to develop a meaningful experience for Cape Henry Collegiate students. The events that followed have provided greater learning lessons than we ever imagined. The learning has gone far beyond a few Spanish words. It has deepened our understanding of cultures and provided unplanned learning experiences along the way.
