As the BCF teachers are incredibly busy and don’t always have access to the quickest internet connection, it’s great when we get to read new blog posts like Reidi’s, who’s based at Autsho MSS in Lhuntse.
“…I truly can’t think of many people I’d rather be around than my students. I say this a bit sheepishly, because I know it sounds like I’m bragging, especially to my teacher friends in America… And maybe I am bragging a bit; while I certainly can’t take credit for the quality of my students’ characters, they indeed have made me into the proudest teacher this side of the Pacific and burst my heart right open. It’s hard not to want to boast, just a little.

…I’ve come to the right place. I get to laugh, joke, play, and share with my students to a degree that would never fly anywhere else… …As my time here dwindles, I realize that it is these moments that will stand out as purely beautiful, simple, and precious. These are some of the most hard-working, unfailingly jovial people in the world. I’m so lucky to be here and get to be part of it. My students are the ones who have brought me to this acuity, and I’d like to honor them for that.”
