“My greatest idol was my grandfather. He was a teacher, headmaster in the 1930’s – 70’s. His stories are still in my mind. How he was helping poor villagers’ kids to go to school for free. And in return, to show their gratitude, how the parents were giving my grandpa chickens they raised… They had no money but their appreciation lasted until the day my grandpa passed away. Every International Teacher’s Day, every Father’s Day, he was being showered with flowers and cards…. He lived to give.
And I want to follow my grandpa’s steps. To give, to help change lives, open doors for the better! Teach Yoga and Elena gave me what I needed to strive. So it gives me great pleasure to work with her aiming to do the same for our teacher training students.
Her energy, her love, her support, her knowledge and her attention to detail is admirable. I see my grandfather in her”.
