By: Nur, Local Teacher Medan
My name is Nur. I have been with IHF as a local teacher in Medan Center since last year. I have been teaching Maths for primary levels here.
Medan Center has been like my second home. This center is not only teaches the children but the local teachers as well. I learned how to communicate with the kids better. I believe the best way to improve ourselves is by sharing our knowledge with others, because sharing motivates us to gain even more knowledge.
Every Friday, Medan center has a special class for local teachers to improve our English conversation skills. This class has been taken care of by Ms. Aditi, one of our Co-Directors. As a local who never goes out of my shell, getting a chance to share stories with the foreign volunteers is something nice to do. We get a chance to know how living in other countries than ours. It is so very interesting. Our Co-Directors are patient to guide the teachers if we don’t understand some subjects. I just can say thank you very much everything. I believe whatever I got from here will be useful in improving myself for a better future.
