My name is Autumn Buzzell and I live and work in Ghana, West Africa with City of Refuge Ministries. Here, I run our school, Faith Roots International Academy, and get to be a part in rescuing and the healing of children who have been trafficked into the fishing trade, orphaned, abandoned, and those who just need a little extra loving. What an amazing gift this life is!

Today, I was so excited to be a part of the teachers training, even if it was just for a few minutes.  Dr. John Lamb from UT Tyler, has been with us for five days, planning, preparing, training, and teaching our teachers and students on the magnificent world of math.

Today, as I sat in on the session, I was encouraged to hear the teachers share what worked and what didn't in the morning camp, how to handle difficult students with challenging concepts, how behavior effects learning, the joy of seeing students "get it". 

And then to watch them begin to work out more problems and ideas themselves. Solving their own perimeter and area problems. Working in teams. Beginning to understand concepts differently than they have thought of them before.

This has been invaluable to our teachers and our students. 

Now, I am excited to see them continue to grow and learn and develop and try new ways to teach concepts.
