Today we had the enormous honor of meeting the Dean and her Education Department at the Atmajaya University. The dean spoke to us about the the Indonesian education structure, along with the processes of becoming a teacher in the country. There were faculty members, school administrators, teachers and new teachers. There were fascinating exchanges about the differing educational systems between our two countries, and why we all became teachers. It was all so heartwarming to hear how we all want to make education better for all our students.
One of the most inspiring part of the meeting was hearing this new teacher, Aditya Pradipta Wardhana, reflect on his past education and how it will affect his pedagogy in his classroom. I will not elaborate too much more, as he was so articulate and eloquent.
