Teachers find rewards in El Salvador

Expecting a rural, underdeveloped nation when they came to El Salvador to teach, several English-speaking foreigners learned a lesson of their own – that the Central American nation is a vibrant country full of friendly people and eager students.

Teaching immerses foreigners – mostly from the United States, but also from Britain, Canada and Australia – into the Salvadoran culture. For some of them, it’s a place they choose to call home.

Piles of homework from AP classes, college applications and essays, sports, and long work hours – most often from grueling minimum wage jobs – are just a few items on the list that seems to grow by the day.
