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.

Look!!!! A "farang" (white foreigner)

We both had to complete a student teaching assignment in Uthai Thani before being allowed to teach at our assigned site. You may question an experienced teacher having to student teach, but it allowed a glimpse into the very different teacher-centered Thai education system and prepared us for the challenges that lie ahead (i.e. how to incorporate an activity-based system into the Thai system).
