Last year, I served as a substitute teacher in my home-town of Minnetonka, Minnesota. As a Kiva Fellow in Latin America, I hope to maintain contact with the students. This is my video journal.

International calls with students can be problematic and inconsistent, so I am preparing a video journal in conjunction with classes in the states. Many were excited about my role with Kiva and based upon class curriculum and interests, students are sending questions for me to answer in the field.

The music comes from the North Minneapolis YMCA "Beats n Rhymes" program. (http://ynrichkids.com/album/the-kids-...).
-All songs written by the students of the North Community YMCA Beats&Rhymes Program, J.T. Evans, and King Ralio.
-All tracks produced by J.T. Evans and King Ralio.
-All tracks mixed and mastered by J.T. Evans
-All tracks recorded by J.T. Evans and King Ralio at the North Community YMCA in North Minneapolis.
