Workshop in Nyamata
The teacher's in my sector were too busy for workshops this month (national exams, English training from the gov't and vacation time) so I went and helped out some of the other VSO volunteers in other districts in Rwanda. For 2 days, I went to Byumba and stayed with fellow Canadian Shala. I helped her and Collette at 2 different schools. In the evenings, we debriefed with beers and chocolate;) This week, I was at Nyamata with Mary (another Canadian!) and we had a very busy 2 days with 40 teachers each day! I learned a great deal from both sets of workshops and have tonnes of ideas for the new semester in January. Thanks gals for letting me get in on the action!
