Name: Lisa Spearman

Here is a little more about our August Coordinator of the month, Lisa Spearman. Congratulations on a job well done!
What have you learned as a Homestay Coordinator with Twinn Palms?
Families are changed by hosting a student and students are changed by the experience. Also, I love that I have been able to watch students mature and develop into adulthood. I love celebrating their accomplishments.
What are some of your favorite moments with your students?
I enjoy when my students are actively involved in both in school and extra curricular activities. I am so happy and proud of them when they achieve their goals and are actively engaged in the Twinn Palms experience.
What do you recommend as the number one “must have” for a host family?
Patience and love for others would be the must have for host families. A great rice cooker and a local chinese food store are a close second.
