1. What am I doing in a village?
I have recently left my job in esho and joined Sreepur team. They told me, as a linguist I’ll be responsible for Sreepur children’s English language development. …well…. I gotta admit my language skill is confusing (I’m a lefty! for me the whole idea of right to left seems wrong!:( ) … so I guess I will try to learn from the children instead of teaching them.
2. Not so warm welcome!
I have recently finished my introduction phase and few staff I met has already warned me about Sreepur’s internal politics. They warned me about gossiping, and inside competitions amongst staff members. It’s sad how some people always tend to see the glass half empty!
3. The silver lining.
The bright side is Sreepur children are very kind hearted and they welcomed me with open wide arms. Sometimes I sit quietly in the preschool and wait till the end to receive a group hug from all of them-and it’s the best feeling in the whole world!
