Mary and I started our second volunteer teaching assignment at Khemmarat Pittayakom ("sharp knowledge") School yesterday. We were introduced to the 1,800 7th to 12th grade students after the flag raising, asked to make a few remarks, and presented with bouquets! Then we met with the English teachers and were given a tour by Mr. Itthipon, the head of the English Department. Today we started our classroom teaching. The school is very near where we're staying; we love the convenience and the opportunity to get to know our neighbors better, but we do miss all the wonderful teachers and students at our previous homestay, Baan Nong Phue School, where we volunteered for almost 5 months. [You can see our photos from Baan Nong Phue on this blog's photo section, and read more about it below]
