Teacher Training
August, 2008


Every year the six teachers of the Deaf Development Programme gather for teacher training. Two of those weeks are in August, during the long break observed by Cambodian schools. This year the training took place in one of the classrooms at the DDP office in Phnom Penh.

Teachers on a break The teachers worked at the training from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Here some of the teachers take a break in mid morning.
