"What was the physical education teacher for?" I asked.
"For the art class" he said. Oh no, not this again. I could have sworn I'd explained that the art class involved painting.
One of the volunteers, a professor at Meru Teacher's College stopped by the office later that day to meet me and hear about the position at Makena that I was looking to fill. He agreed to work there once a week, helping them out with the computer and internet and maybe with some marketing! He will be working there until the new American volunteer, Sandi, arrives next fall, but potentially longer if he decides to. If he has to stop volunteering early for any reason, it is his responsibility to find a replacement. Sustainability? Check!
Luckily finding an art teacher also worked out really well. The physical education teacher has a background in carpentry and woodworking and has taught at the Meru School for Mentally Challenged Children before. The school also has a wood shop class that he might be able to help out at.
