Do you remember Clementina? The blog is called “Clementina wants to be a doctor.” Now she is a teacher in Primary classes. When she surprised me with her presence in Yua, I asked if she wanted to help me teach. She jumped at the chance and was full speed ahead going to the classes even before I arrived for the day in Yua. She is loving teaching english and reading to them.
One boy today waved goodbye to her and said, “Tomorrow.” They really like her. Too many of the teachers don’t even show up for work. They get paid low salaries and are not well trained. Unfortunately many of them are more interested in the paycheck than the students. Not so with Clementina. She wasn’t working before she visited and even though she isn’t getting paid, she feels useful and wishes she had a teacher like herself when she was in Primary.
So, I feel really great having someone take the reins after I leave. It will be fantastic to see how much better these kids do in JSS when I come back because of her. I really hope she sticks with it. She is truly beautiful, inside and out.
