My name is Renee Yafuso and I am one of the co-leaders for the Esteli 2A trip this summer. From my greeting you can probably gather that I am from Hawaii and from my blog title, a lover of animated movies (i.e. Charlotte’s Web). I am a biology teacher at Freedom High School in Oakley and as you can see from my photo, I love my human family, furry family Cosmo and Butters, Hawaii, science, and hockey. I became a GG leader because I love to travel and to learn about other cultures. There is nothing quite like learning something firsthand, rather than by watching a documentary, although I do love NOVA and similar programming. I do not speak Spanish, but am good at pantomime and catching someone’s drift. We will work together to share our strengths and teach each other. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and going on an amazing journey that will no doubt transform us all.
I would love to know what you are most looking forward to and who you hope to be at the end of this trip.
See you soon!
