May 6th was the last day of classes for Semester One at the University of Malawi Chancellor College. Semester Two will begin on June 27th and I will be teaching second-year students.
The first-year students in my Introduction to Communication Studies class asked for photos to remember their first professor from the United States! But first I took some classroom shots of them!
There was time for a small group picture before we had to leave for the next class to arrive.
And of course I had to fulfill those special requests for individual photos with me. Here are the ones I managed to take with my camera.
I am truly going to miss all of my students and enjoyed every moment of teaching with them! In spite of living in the poorest country in the world, they are enthusiastic, hopeful, motivated, curious, and tireless LEARNING SPONGES!!! And thanks to technology (and perhaps an airplane trip or two in the future), we will be able to stay in touch with one another through the years.
