Help Me Teach English, Por Favor!

My name is Kristen Saltzman, and I am a senior elementary education major at The University of Mississippi. After I graduate, I plan to go to graduate school before becoming a full-time teacher. The graduate program is 14 months long, starting in June 2015 and ending in August 2016. This leaves me no time to be able to travel like I have wanted to since I began college.
Over the summer I was visiting churches in Oxford, Mississippi and heard someone share his story about teaching English to children in Mexico. Since then, I have felt so inspired to find an opportunity to teach English while also trying to spread the word of God.
Recently, I was e-mailed by someone that is a part of the Office of Outreach at Ole Miss and was interested in speaking to the organization that I am over, Teachers of Tomorrow. Her goal is to find people to travel to Ecuador from January 3-11 to teach English and provide medical care to the people there. My golden opportunity has finally arrived!
Now I need your help to make this dream a reality! While I wish that I could afford this expense on my own, student teaching has taken away my availability to earn money this year. The cost of this trip is around $3,000, but anything that you can give is very much appreciated. If you feel compelled to support me in this volunteer opportunity, please donate to my fund by December 1st!
God Bless and Happy Holidays!
