Why I LOVE Kazakhstan, Mountains and My Students

Now who would want to teach in Almaty, Kazakhstan, with mountains in the landscape and fun students in the foreground, I ask you.  We are in the home stretch with problem and solution essays and I am getting preliminary writings from my students about their final portfolio projects.  Interesting that the person who asked about Alatau Sanatorium liked the quote that I use with every signing off on my e-mails by Arnold Bennett:

“There can be no knowledge without emotion.  We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours.  To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.”
