Classes: Dylan is immersed in advanced Calculus (Calc 4 I believe) as well as advanced Statistics and an educational methods course. Christiy is taking two practice-focused (as opposed to theory-focused) courses on Development Management and Program Design, Monitoring & Evaluation. The practicality is great!
Work: Dylan is student teaching at Wilson High School, where he assists with Alegbra 1 & 2. He'll be doing a two-week take-over in March where he plans and teaches all the class by himself! He really likes Wilson and is learning a lot about classroom management from his cooperating teacher, Jacquie. He'll be applying for full-time teaching positions over the next few months.
Christiy is working full-time at Public International Law & Policy Group (PILPG) as a Program Associate. As part of the Syria/Yemen team, I support our projects in the field by doing logistics, drafting reports for funders, and developing training materials. I also work on a variety on organizational management and strategic communication projects. It has been/continues to be a steep learning curve, but I'm excited to be working at such a great organization!
Church/Friends: We enjoy meeting with our church small group every week and continuing to get to know people at Restoration Church. Our social calendar is much fuller than it used to be as we get together with other couples more frequently for meals and games. We had the chance to go skiing with some friends from church last weekend, which was a blast!
We don't have a lot of downtime, but life is good and we're learning a lot. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers!
