It’s been about a week here teaching the students in Cambodia. Waking up, doing chores, eating breakfast, biking to school, teaching the students in middle school, biking back home, teaching some younger students back at the center, and then biking them home. These children are so bright, curious, and engaged, and they have brought definition and meaning to my life here in Cambodia. I know I will miss my students when the time comes, but for the time being I will focus on the time I have left here and how to use it best to benefit my students. Although I am supposed to be teaching them, they have taught me just as much back. My relationship with them has grown and I hope to develop it even more before I leave. Besides a relationship with my students, I have grown and learned even more about my peers and advisor. Without their support and encouragement, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
Sorry for the late posts, everyone, but we are limited to Internet access. Happy belated New Year’s. In case you guys are wondering if I have gotten tan, no; I am still pretty pale. 🙂
