Fifty-three Kenyan seventh graders and an English book…GO!

Posted on February 5th, 2014 by BreAnn

There’s something about being handed a falling-apart English book, being given NO guidance or lesson plan, and standing yourself in front of 50+ African seventh graders in a dirty, cement classroom with no electricity, desks falling apart, and being equipped with ONLY a single piece of chalk and your brain and being told by the […]
