    "Hector, one of my praxis site coordinators said something that I will never forget. He said, 'You all were willing to live and learn about the history of El Salvador and I have faith that the mutual love we have experienced here will be transferred to your communities at school and at home.' Their words and the incredible meaning behind their gifts touched me."
