attached to this email the names and birthdays of all of the
kids in preschool in an excel file. We have divided the
children into three groups based on age. I am so excited
about how the school is going this year. The women are
taking more initiative in teaching their assigned kids.
Inca, the women from Gunsi, has also stepped up her presence
at the preschool. Not having her own group of kids to teach
puts her in more of a supervisory role. She helps the women
with their group when she sees a need. She has also been
very helpful in providing different activities for the
teachers to do with the kids. One day Inca put on a puppet
show for the kids which went over very well.
I am just
really really excited about this school year with the
preschool. The school is running so much better than last
year. I have been very very impressed with the women’s
dedication to teaching. When I go to visit some of the
women at their houses I actually see them doing prep work
for the next day of school.
a few obstacles that the preschool faces. Having over 60
kids in the Teeifuka facility has its obstacles. I have
been encouraging the teachers to take their group to
different locations such as on the plane field or under a
tree to work with the kids. Having three separate classes
going on in the same room is just not very conducive to
learning. As I am sure you know Teeifuka is very warm. Edi
put in two windows that open put I would have to say that
their affect on the heat in the building is minimal.
number of teachers and students now going to teeifuka
preschool the not only are the current tables and chairs way
too big for the children (as is evident by the number of
kids falling out of their chairs) but there are not enough
chairs and table space for everyone.
some video and pictures of the school. I had burned a CD
with pictures for Trude but was unable to get it to her
before she left for the Netherlands. I will add the current
pictures and videos to the previous collection and give it
to either Muyra or Eddy.
I will be
in town until Friday October 27th for my Routine Peace Corps
Medical checkup. It would be great if we could set up a
time to talk on the phone. While you are free to call me at
anytime on my cell phone, the cell phone is old and
reception is very poor. It would be better if you say what
time you will call and then call me at the Peace Corps
for supporting the preschool in TuTu.
