Marlene A., English Teacher, Christel House Mexico
My name is Marlene, and my experience as an English teacher would not be the same without Christel House Mexico.
A few years ago, I worked in the world of tourism. I thought I was happy working for wealthy people and planning amazing holidays for them; however after a few years, I felt like something was missing.
I believe that a higher power organizes everything in a perfect and synchronistic path and all of a sudden I found myself changing careers. I decided to become an English teacher because I thought I could contribute with the growth of my country through education.
This path was not easy at the beginning. But my first visit to Christel House during a job interview changed my life. It turned out to be a significant experience that has impacted both my personal life and career plans. This was when I allowed myself to see the path and I found out that all the pieces of the puzzle were drawn together.
I felt privileged to be chosen to be part of this wonderful cause and to be able to work with amazing people who give the best of their hearts to these kids every day.
Every day is a challenge, but also a blessing to share a piece of my life and my heart with the kids. They have given me great lessons of tenderness, love and strength.
The needs of the children are immeasurable and I remain amazed by their sheer strength, determination, dignity and their hope for a better future.
Sharing a great part of my day with the kids whose drive and passion continues to inspire me day-by-day make me feel stronger and very fortunate.
Christel House is such a powerful example of what can be accomplished when we all come together for a common good, and I feel very happy to be part of this team.
