i attended the saturday school from second grade, since the year my family and i moved to the us from poland in order to continue learning the language of the country i was born in, along with its history and customs. when i graduated the school, i wanted to give back to the organization what was intertwined in many aspects of my being, and i became a teacher of the first grade for four years. being a student has shaped me into the person i am today, fully aware and proud of my background. likewise, being a teacher was a rich and rewarding experience, having the chance to pass on what i have learned.
a quick recap of the event below, with some highlights of my speech and skit:
below is the press coverage as well as a copy of my speech and certificate for my teaching contribution.
