Looking to volunteer in medical setting or teach ESL

Post by NWBen » Sun Jan 30, 2011 3:01 pm

I'm going to be in Xela for 6 to 8 weeks, late February to late April. I'm no longer certified but worked as a nursing assistant in a hospital for 2 years and was a student in a RN program for a year and am able to take blood pressure/vital signs/patient histories. If I don't find an opportunity to volunteer in a medical setting, I've taught ESL in Poland and Germany and would be interested in doing so someplace in Guatemala -- if it were in conjunction w/an opportunity to take Spanish courses.

After my first two weeks in Xela, I'm willing to travel to another part of the country, if the volunteer opportunity is elsewhere.
