Coming to an afternoons rest, sitting at Farm de Lek’s little local store here in Thailand, after just getting back yesterday afternoon, watching the peace delivering sunset while soft water sounds fill the surrounding, I am still mind-blown by the experience I was just so very blessed to have. Especially after a friend of mine suddenly lost his brother, another friend surviving a heart attack, it just made me realize time is precious and enjoying life and making the changes we want to see cannot wait another minute.
It is 2 am and my mind is racing a million miles an hour. Being awoken with nightmares of former students devastated and crying, I decided maybe it would be a better idea to process and write. When I had to tell my students I had to leave, it was one of the hardest things I ever had to do.
One of those days in school
Dissertation candidate- I did not even know that was a thing.
After a year of classes, always worrying for the ‘pink slip’ to be delivered, it was finally here: Residency 851 (whatever that meant…)
Flying out, I longed to escape. I am no academic, but to make the change I want to see, this was the route that higher spirits had placed me on. With an uncomfortable feeling, I packed my bag with dresses and high heels- no jeans allowed (yay for the land of the free!). The flight went well, but the Uber driver had to circle the hotel about three times until he realized it was in the gated compound complex, with armed security guards welcoming us to the high fenced in campus. The hotel was lovely, beautiful palm trees bordered pool, inviting heat, and cozy crackling open air fire place. Oh, but little did I know.
Open minds and Perspective Change for 120 fifth Grade Students-
Impossible? We think NOT!
Visiting one of the most prestigious International Baccalaureate schools in Europe, Frankfurt International IB School, it was an absolute pleasure to be received with so much open mindedness and true interest in the Movement Method philosophy.
