SCHOOLS AND EDUCATION

I continually hear that that schools in Mexico are not good, that many teachers are not qualified as they either inherited there position from a relative or bought it. I know the teacher union is very strong here which could give credibility to some of the stories. But last Saturday evening at the plaza there were wonderful displays by the local school children, displays of history, geography, science, engineering and technology. My Spanish is limited but I was able to enjoy the poster type displays as I could read them, but when the kids wanted to share their knowledge with me my vocabulary just isn’t there yet. One young lady was kind enough to explain about the great women of her region in English and her English while halting was very good.

I think the secondary schools must be small and scattered all through town as I see kids in different school uniforms heading all different directions as I make my way to the pool.I like the look of school kids in uniforms, they are always so neat and tidy.  Just click on a picture to enlarge it.

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO
