My name is Kathy Tollenaar and I am the TREE Inclusion Facilitator in Hakha, Chin State. Prior to being here in Hakha, I spent a year teaching English in an adult education centre in Lashio, quickly falling in love with the country and the people here. Before coming to Myanmar, I spent 2 years doing independent volunteer work in schools in Ghana, another amazing and enriching experience. I am most in love with being the mother of 3 daughters and grandmother of little Ellie.
I spent 2 fantastic years working in Myanmar until 2016 – in an EC, on a project with amazing Myanmar teacher trainers. It was such an enjoyable experience that I wanted to return – and work with teacher trainers in Myanmar again. Working with Myanmar teacher trainers – means that I have the chance to teach English and to learn so much from the teachers every day.
