Representative from Indonesia talks about overseas teaching opportunities
November 20, 2012
More than 100 students filled the Emitte Center on Corban’s Salem campus to hear the Associate Head of Schools for Sekola Pelita Harapan talk about Christian education in Indonesia.
The schools are part of the Pelita Harapan Foundation’s education system and offer contract teaching opportunities to Corban School of Education graduates. Aileen Riady, Associate Head of School for SPH spoke about the need for high quality educators and how Corban School of Education graduates are making a difference. Currently, nine Corban alumni are teaching in Indonesia through this partnership.
Several current Corban students also shared details about their summer teaching experience. Three seniors, Jake and Christina Johnson and Nona Nelson took the opportunity to teach in various Pelita Harapan schools during summer 2012.
“There were quite a few questions that were asked and people were taking notes,” said JennaMarie Harris, the presentation organizer. “I personally was just blown away at the opportunities we have there. Corban has a wonderful relationship and has opened so many doors for students here.”
