Today I was a teacher in Guclukonak itself. And it’s way better. Here, it’s the big village. 6000 people instead of 800. It’s a world of difference. Most kids are actually in class to learn, and I’m better now too. We do Hello/Thank you/Please in 6 languages, English number’s till a billion. Actually, the school here could be in Belgium. Overcrowded classes because of a lack of teachers, but we have that at home too. Same for the disrepair of the buildings. Actually, here I was surprised at the quality, coming from Koctepe. One of the interesting things here is that being a teacher is still held in extremely high respect.
