Tackled week two!

My school - Sitipogo Combined School
Having a lot of trouble uploading photos (due to the super slow internet) but with a little patience, I was able to add these two photos. Lots more coming! Hopefully 🙂

Wow honey. You are truely in Africa! Well, you have survived the toughest part; the first week, so anything is possible. Once you have taught there you will be able to teach anywhere, believe me, because you learn to be truely versative, and you learn the pure art of teaching with expensive resources, or interactive whiteboards. I truely believe that a true teacher should be able to sit under a tree and just teach. That’s what you’ll learn and it’s a valuable lesson. Then when you get on to the teaching course back home (which you will, without a doubt), you’ll find it a breeze.
Now hang in there, enjoy the moment, it’s gone too soon, and no hitchiking alone.
Love and miss you,
PS. Passed your link onto Kathy but going to pass it on to Justin and Steph too as they may be able to share their hardships too (they are still in the Arctic).

Ok that should read “without expensive resources…….”

Wow it looks like an episode of lost and the others camp. Very nice, I like the tub and shower LOL. We miss you lots and are happy that you are at least a little settled. Although, shopping may be a little challenging! No Starbucks, but you found a great cafe.
