The teaching team woke up ready and raring to get to our first workshop day. We ate breakfast – eggs, pancakes, hum (yes- hum!), bacon and there was even a random butterfly! With full bellies, we were ready to tackle the day ahead of us.
After the morning assembly, we split off into our teaching teams and met the Khmer teachers who would be participating in the SeeBeyondBorders professional development. Any worries and fears soon diminished as we settled into our lessons and began doing what we do best.
Although there was a definite language barrier (broken down by our incredible translators), we all managed to laugh, snicker and share a universal smile. As exhausted as we are feeling, we are all very eager to get back to the Teacher Training College and continue learning with our new Khmer friends.
