For the last two weeks of Pre-Service Training all of the volunteers have been scattered around Kediri teaching in various high schools and middle schools for practicum. We are given the opportunity to take everything we learn during PST about both how to teach, but also how Indonesian schools operate, and apply it before we get to permanent site.
It’s been an interesting two weeks and a reality check about what our day to day lives might actually feel like. But every school is different – so my permanent site will likely be a completely new experience.
Either way it has been a learning process. My proudest moment in an Indonesian classroom by far was teaching the first group of students “She’ll be coming ’round the mountain.” I hope you enjoy the video here as much as I enjoyed teaching it!
