The Village Schools - Ghana 2

If I don't post twice today I'm not sure if I'll keep up with all the excitement and adventure! (As well as access to the internet!)

The view from our front gate is straight out of a folk tale. The flowers are in full bloom, everything is green and lush, and these school buildings blend right into the environment. The buildings in these photos are for the youngest children in the school - Creche (toddlers) to kindergarten (age 5). Children's voices are everywhere, as they begin their school learning experiences. I have 3 student teachers placed here, so it makes it very convenient for me!

Each building is painted a different theme, which only adds to the storytelling ambiance.

On our first day we took our own mini-tour, as we waited for the director who would show us around. Excitement overcame fatigue, and the group had a grand time with their first introduction to where they would be teaching and learning for almost 8 weeks.

(In case you were wondering, the new masthead photo was taken on our first excursion. More on this coming soon.)
