Larry Ferlazzo is continuing an amazing series of interviews which he calls, "Teachers in Hot Spots".
Please take a read, well worth it.
Also, I'd like to know if others know of teachers who'd be willing to be email interviewed by Larry. Other teachers now in or formerly in "hot spots". I'll leave you to interpret that phrase but it could mean war zones, disaster zones, isolated places etc....
Thanks in advance if you can come up with some contacts and names!
Bruce and Martin,
Past "hot spots" count, too :)
I'll send you questions in the next week or two. I hope others will respond, too, for past or present hot spots...
I would be interested in giving an interview! I used to work in Kala Refugee Camp in Zambia with refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo. For my job, I was responsible for documenting our projects and I also taught English lessons/photography lessons at one of the schools that my organization built. I worked there from 2008-2009.
I also taught English at a summer school program in Vares, Bosnia in 2004 (10 years after the war.) The aim of our summer school program was to integrate the towns 3 religious groups: Orthodox, Roman Catholics, and Muslims.
I'm currently teaching in Korean Public Schools in Gangwon-Do, South Korea.
Great! I'll get questions to you within a week or two, also.
Was that the first one or the more successful second?
I was there for a year in Kyiv in 2000 - lived right beside the Presidential Admin building on Lutheranskya. Was pretty active at tent city and organizing/protesting (enough to get informally thrown out of the country). Miss the place.
