Teacher Pamela, as she preferred to be known, gave our students a wonderful experience–a real taste of Kenya.
It was a great opportunity for them to meet such an outstanding representative of the Republic of Kenya who brought to life the learning they had gained only from books and the internet. She provoked such enthusiasm for the subject with her firsthand account of Kenyan life, her animal sculptures, and her slide show. Teacher Pamela complimented our students on their fitting combination of questions which she answered with captivating explanations.
Some of their comments:
“Thanks to Teacher Pamela for telling us about the people and animals.”
“Teacher Pamela was so nice to answer all of my questions.”
“It was fun and easy to understand more about Kenya’s tribes.”
“The thumb drive helped us about the Swahili language.”
“I got excited to go to Kenya.”
“I want to see Teacher Pamela again.”
Teacher Pamela wanted the students to know that they were great that day, that she enjoyed her afternoon, and that she was glad to have made a positive impact on their learning. She believes that one day some of them will visit or if not they will learn to protect animals and help make the world a better place.
Thanks to Teacher Pamela for such a memorable afternoon.
