Last week you may have noticed that I left out the post about who exactly will be your coordinator over your time on the Starfish Volunteer Teaching Project, the reason for this is that we are currently training up a new member of staff to replace our old staff member Arm.
Our new member of staff is the very lovely, and particularly handsome Nikki.
Looking productive at Teaching there Nikki!
Nikki studied Education Technology at one of the local Universities, Phranakhon Rajabat University, and did very well indeed! He is super hard working and dedicated to everything he does, especially what he loves.
Nikki is well known in Surin for being the front man of the Regge Band that plays at Surins Regge Bar ‘Jar Bar’, hes great at pumping up the crowd and making everyone have an amazing time. Goodness knows he manages to work all day on the Teaching Project and then all night being Thailands very own Bob Marley; major props to him!
Playing the front man for Jarbars House Band 😀
Our newest Starfish has great English skills, he is still very new to speaking English for several hours a day so just be patient with him and try not to over complicate your language to much with him. He is by no means a novice English speaker but I know from speaking a different language for several hours a day that people forget how quickly they talk; I am terrible for this. I speak very quickly which, for people who aren’t used to it have trouble understanding it and it is the same with Nikki, just talk a little slower and then everyone will be happy and understanding each other.
So play nice with our newest Starfish, we think he is pretty amazing and I know that you will as well, he has the most welcoming smile, an incredible nature and temperament and he also has beautiful hair as well; the most important thing I think haha
To see what Nikki is up to with our incredible teaching project then take a look at the Starfish Website, if you want to see what other projects we do then take a look at the Starfish – Volunteer Thailand Facebook page or the Starfish Tumblr page, these are filled with photos and tales of all the projects we do.
