Today I taught at the school that JRS created for refugee kids. Most of them are from Syria but some are Iraqi . I shall have some postcards to give you when I am back home. My sorries if you get one of mine-there are going to be about 4 of them. The rest are very nice.
They were put together by ages 9-16, so they are really from 4th-the middle year of high school. They look nice. Also, I TAUGHT the classes. I gave out the postcards out that you guys made as gifts. Every one was happy to see such nice cards.
It was a very moving experience. How the kids acted, and how I felt about them, is a little too personal to be put in print.
In one of the classes, the kids spoke descent English. Thus making it easy for me to not speak Arabic. The second class, the children there spoke barely to no English. I had to speak maximum Arabic. The teacher did the rest. Well, I will teach again at this school on Thursday. Tomorrow, we go to Byblos to a different school.
If all is well in Alaska, that’s good enough for me. Ping me on the comments, ask questions, etc.
See you soon,
