Peace Corps volunteer Ferris Badge and I took on an additional project of teaching preschool. My primary assignment was in the high school, and Ferris worked with an eco-club. With our most advanced class, we ended every session singing the Barney theme song and then they wanted to have a mass hug. This was on our final day together in May 2008. Being so far from family, having hugs from all those little kids was a great comfort and made up for the chaos of trying to teach a dozen or more 4-7 year olds a foreign language in 30 minutes a week for each of our four classes. We also made the certificates of achievement for learning the whole alphabet and words for every letter.
