My Wonderful Karen People Students

In my Family Literacy Class, I have three women who are from The Karen People of Burma. It is a joy to teach them. They have taught me how to say good morning, thank you, and hi how are you in their language.

For Christmas they gave me a traditional Karen Vest. One of the teachers made more room it for me. Today I wore it in class for the first time. For me, it is an honor when people give me something from their culture.

I am proud of the three moms. One is also a grandmother. All three love to go to PACT Time, parent and child together, to observe their children in school. They are conscientious students and moms.

You can google Karen People Refugee Camp and see photos of what the camps are like. These moms have overcome a lot. They come to my class because they want to help their children as well as learn English.

They are part of the reason I get up in the mornings and pray. Each morning I pray and ask Jesus to bless my students. My students are God’s gifts to me.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.
