Taking Pride in Teaching

                Our eyes were opened to yet another new experience, especially touching to us as future teachers. We visited the Chivala F.P. School and were welcomed by many eager faces and outstretched arms. Our journey through the school yard and into several classrooms made us aware of the conditions of the school. Walking into the classroom, we were enveloped into a cloud of dust. As we looked around the classroom, we realized there was not much to see; no desks for the children, one chalkboard, and a few tattered handmade posters. These bare classrooms served to teach classes of 100 students or more.
                We ended our morning by meeting with the Chivala teachers to share experience and words of wisdom. Understanding the pride they take in their career with such few resources was inspiration to us all.
