Photos of School Administrators in Taras

How wonderful to be welcomed by the school administrators in Taras this past week. Also nice to see their cheery offices with all the green plants due to the longer growing season of warmth and sun.  Astana is such a new city that we don’t see as many BIG plants that are well established in office windows.  Prices of plants here in the northern capital are quite high.  To get these green things from the store to one’s home means putting them in a thick brown paper bag that is insulated.  These teachers really care about their young pupils. One woman principal turned down a higher paying job because she did not want to leave behind her 250 charges.  She said she was created for the job she currently has.
