In this, I would like to describe about the culture and nomadic life which are significant parts of Mongolia, as well as education which allowed me to stay in this country, and lastly finish with big thanks.
The four movies I’ve watched recently moved me to tears. They are about (1) non-fighting bull in Spain, (2) Big black guy who found his home in another side of town (3) Taking bear in London and (4) Show of unique humans in New York. Although those are totally different movies, they have one common theme which teaches us a very important lesson: “What you are supposed to be is something you can change if you wish and go for it”.
The other day, I attended one workshop on inclusion where we discussed how to include people with disabilities in the society, and I learned something important which changed my idea on inclusion.
Did you know that the October 6th was International Aid day?
I didn’t know about it, although I am working in this field. Actually there are too many “international day of XXX”.
However, this year, an article about my interview was published on that day through Japanese job search magazine “My Navi”, titled《What we can do now for the world》
Since I came to Mongolia, I haven’t written about the subject I am working on: Mongolian education. The other day, I attended one event where I reflected the past, present and future of education in this country.
Last week, I was invited to present in an international education conference in Mongolia (albeit small scale).
The theme of the conference was “issue and solution of pre/primary education.”
I thought that would be a great chance to present the current project I am in charge of (project to support 1st grader’s school transition). But I was asked to talk something about Japan, mainly because I would be presenting as a Guest from Japan (although I am based in Mongolia!). ←Probably the conference did not have enough budget to invite many people from Japan (there was one college professorーREAL guest from Japan).
♪Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred (525,600) minutes,
♪How do you measure, measure a year?
―“seasons of Love” from the musical Rent―
With just one day to go to finish this year, this song came to my mind, which got me thinking “How do I measure year 2015?”.
Then I came to pick up travelling, job, people and books.
