Marj-al-Hamam, Amman, Jordan
It struck me as my last class was on their break, and I went walking down the second floor hallway past Kristen and Fadi’s classrooms.
We all had at least 9 students, grouped at tables, hard at work. Despite the post-Ramadan slump (everyone’s maxed out their budgets on Eid al-Fitr gifts), we’ve got nicely packed classrooms. We’re starting to look like a real school around here, and it’s quite satisfying. (Not to mention, a relief: it means we can feel fairly secure about our continued employment!)
And with the corporate contracts pouring in, I feel fairly confident that it will only get better.
