Thank you to 3 incredible people!

-by Dale & Cyndi (Project Eden)

This month we want to recognize the very special and dedicated teachers who help to make Eden such a loving place for students to grow in skills and confidence.

dorcasEvery day, Alex and Dorcas are in the classroom, teaching math & geography, and Chinese language, literature and history.  However, their lessons on life skills, personal responsibility, and caring for others permeate their attitudes and activities outside the classroom:  in the kitchen as the girls take turns helping them with meal preparation, in the house as they monitor cleaning chores and hygiene, and over meals as they sit and chat with students.  Though we try to protect their “off” time in the evenings, they are constantly being called on to answer someone’s homework questions, or check someone’s earache or fever, or run some errand.  Never once have we seen them respond with anything except a ready smile and constant patience.

michelleMichelle volunteers her time two mornings a week to teach English to our on-site students.  The girls enjoy taking the bus on their own to her home (we’re pretty sure they slip in a little snack-shopping on the way), and playing with her little girls during class breaks.  Michelle skillfully combines affirmation and challenge as she encourages the girls to step out of their comfort zones in using their English and presentation skills, and we love hearing updates from her on their progress.

We are so thankful for the depth and dedication of these dear people, and for their generosity in sharing, not just their time and talents, but their love and lives with the girls and with us.
