To begin with, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who made it possible for me to go through my first-year teaching experiences successfully here in the United States, as an exchange teacher from Ghana West Africa. Officials from Aiken County School Districts, Aiken Intermediate Administrators/Officers and colleague teachers have been so wonderful in providing support in all diverse ways. Not forgetting you parents and my wonderful students, you are really awesome. I have learnt so much from you which will indeed broaden my scope of knowledge. I appreciate you all.

    I will use this 2022 summer break in the state to learn more about teaching at the elementary level and so, I have enrolled in summer teaching. After the teaching, I will then learn more about the American culture through cooking, socializing with some American friends and travelling to visit some family members in other states.

    I am of the view that this 2022-2023 school year will be another level of learning full of many good things.

    Once again, I appreciate you all for being there for me, and wish you a happy and a fruitful summer in 2022.
