Teaching English at King’s Academy, Jordan

For the second year, Project Rousseau was very proud to send one of our college students to King’s Academy in Amman, Jordan to teach English to low-income students in Jordan as part of King’s Summer Enrichment Program (SEP). This year, Eliana, a senior at Georgetown University, represented Project Rousseau at SEP.

Eliana spent two weeks teaching at King’s Academy. As a former English Language Learner student herself when she first came to the United States, Eliana found the experience rewarding and very close to home.

King’s Academy says: "We were very lucky to have Eliana among our cohort of SEP teachers this past summers, she was amazing! From the first day of SEP she jumped right in and was one of the most involved teachers. Her students loved her and I am sure many will stay in touch with her for a while!”

We look forward to seeing our students continue to teach at SEP in the years to come. Thank you, King’s, for this extraordinary opportunity for our students to give back in a meaningful way while developing valuable professional skiils!
