Letter from our New Beginnings Scholar Mutita
"My name is Mutita and I’m currently working at BanMaeNaJang school as a 2nd-grade teacher. I serve many roles at school. I teach all the subjects such as Thai, English, and Math. I also help take care of the school’s finances. Having so many job responsibilities is hard but I’m very happy with my work, especially when I see my students smile. Our school consists of 4 teachers and 65 students (including kindergarten and primary school). All of the students are Karen, a tribe that is very connected with nature. Our school is located in the countryside and we like to include nature and the outdoors in our studies. After graduating from primary school, some students will get married young and find work because of poverty. I became a teacher because I hope to help my students have a good future. My goal as a teacher is to give my students love, knowledge, and good opportunities. I want to give them all the support they need so they can grow up, to be honest, smart, and good people. Today, I will give them a chance. Tomorrow, they will give others."
