Greetings from my new town of Aman near Mizan Teferi. I’m all moved into my new home and now I’m trying to get it all fixed up so I have somewhere nice and cozy to come home to everyday. Well, so far that process is going slow because I have no furniture and I’ve only ordered a bed frame. Slowly but surely things will all come together though. For now, I’m managing and I’ve got a basic setup for what I do have.
I’ve been going around town meeting and introducing myself to all the local town administrators and to the staff at the Aman General Primary School where I’ve been assigned to work. I’ve been explaining that for the first few months at my new site I will be doing research for my CENA aka Community Education Needs Assessment which I will turn in around the end of November when I return to Addis for IST (In-Service Training). Once I’m done with IST I’ll return to Aman to begin working on projects such as starting an English club one for students and another for teachers. At that point I’ll also begin to plan for my first trainings that I’ll give for the teachers at my school. Once I get busy and I have my house set up I’ll really like my town. The people are very kind and all the teachers seem willing and eager to work with me even though some of them have been teaching for 20 years or more. I’m thankful for that. Well, that is it. I’ll end by providing my new address below. Be sure to check my wish list page on my main blog website.
My new address:
P.O. Box 452
Mizan Teferi, Ethiopia
