During the summer of 2010, I traveled to rural Costa Rica as a volunteer teacher. I worked with children in grades K-6 in an after-school program called CREAR, teaching technology classes. I was moved to volunteer in this manner after researching the "digital divide" that exists in Costa Rica during a university course assignment I completed the semester before. The lessons I personally learned greatly impacted the teacher I am today.
