Caitlin's Journey to Poland

Current Location

Chełm Poland

Hello! My name is Caitlin Mello and I am teaching English in a small town in eastern Poland for the next nine months. Who's ready for an adventure? Come learn about a new culture with me!


This weekend, I was lucky enough to be invited to a conference in Prague, Czechia. This medieval city is full of old buildings, cobblestone streets and incredible history.


Cześć! As you may remember this word means Hello, but it also means Goodbye in Polish. This will be my last journal with your classroom.

Field Notes

Keeping a community clean is one of the most influential factors in citizen involvement outside their own homes. Poland attacks this problem in a very effective way.


A few weekends ago, I was able to travel to Wrocław in anticipation of Polish Independence Day. It is a beautiful city that has often been voted one of the cultural capitals of Europe.
