Teaching in Zambia

Guest Writer: Betty Trummel
Traveling to Zambia was a unique and inspirational experience for me. Working with children who eagerly grasped on to every bit of new information we shared was awesome! Their love, grace, and welcoming smiles were all a joy to behold! I was able to incorporate science and social studies (my favorites) into lessons in the school garden and lessons using finger puppets to explore African animals and their habitats. Each day was not only a learning experience for those children we met or worked with, but a personal learning journey for me. I think one of the highlights was filming the children in the upper class as they shared the mini-books they had written. Those kids had not done anything like this before and the smiles on their faces were priceless. They were SO proud and Mal and I were equally proud of them.
