Two in Thailand

After raising three children and watching them graduate from college, Bob and Carol decided to leave the educational field and pursue a dream that had been put on hold for 35 years (since graduationg from the University of Northern Iowa). "Two in Thailand" is the journal dedicated to that dream - to serve in the Peace Corps. This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed within do not necessarily represent the views of the Peace Corps or the United States Government.

The Rewards of Teaching in Thailand!!!!



Carol finished her "practice teaching" last week. The students gave her gifts and created a small scrapbook with all their pictures. The Thais are very generous, appreciative, and are a very "giving" group of people. They have a great sense of humor and love to participate in activities that are fun or crazy. Despite having far less than their American counterparts, the "happiness factor" seems to be much higher in Thailand.

Mom- you look so happy! Back in the class room again! Who knew it would have to happen all the way across the world.

Maybe you can start a Votique and you can make pencil holders out of yarn and old tin cans...

And then I will come out and we can start a theatre troup- the Thai players.
