The second part of our trip was spent in Tikapur where our hosts took great care of us. We stayed in the recently completed guest house.
While we were in Tikapur we spent time visiting the Grace School, and the PremNagar School. We had the joy of being involved with the opening of the new Grace Secondary School. Again, the reception was very moving and the children presented songs, modern and traditional dance along with a comical skit. We were made to feel very welcome as honored guests.
During our visit there, we spent time observing the teachers in these schools as they were teaching English to their students and we helped in their lessons. The week before our visit Carla Rogers from TINC had visited and spent many hours with the teachers helping them with phonics. Over the next two days we continued with this course of instruction with the teachers from all the schools, reviewing phonics through the use of ten Dr. Seuss books which they were each required to be able to read and pronounce proficiently. We are pleased to report that all of the teachers that attended over those two days achieved Level One, and were proudly presented with a certificate and a bonus by Marian and Suzie. Mission accomplished!
