Review for Mainsprings: Janada L. Batchelor Foundation for Children Inc., Tulsa, OK, USA
This past August I traveled with 9 colleagues from the Episcopal School of Dallas to visit Mainspring's campus and work with the teachers of Joseph and Mary School. After getting a taste of their volunteer experience, we gave a professional development working of pedagogical techniques with their staff and then partnered with their teachers in adapting these techniques to their classrooms. This was a really amazing experience that exposed me to some wonderful children and really committed adults. It made me ask myself some important questions about my approach to teaching and the assumptions I make about Africa.
