To be honest, the idea of standing in front of a large group of kids seemed daunting. Giving a business presentation? Happy to. Teaching a group of kids? I had no idea how to tackle that. Well, it resulted in a new found appreciation for the teacher’s job and the comraderie among the volunteer group made sure we came up with lesson plans as we went along and managed to do something meaningful. The feedback from the kids and the fun we all had made it more than worthwhile. Add a stunning view that greets you early in the morning when you wake up and it’s a perfect break from city life.
