How is volunteering in Bullerbyn?

This is volunteer Nazi in Bullerbyn. Today i want to share with you my Well, i’m sitting and thinking from where i should start and what i have to say first but it’s so difficult to some up this long one year, a lot of things happened, a lot of changes and news. From the first day of my volunteering i was scared and confused. First time in a free democratic school, woow that was a big challenge.

New work place, new people, different cultures and most important issue, communication with kids. During the whole year i was trying to suggest kids different type of activities, sometimes about cooking, painting, games, online classes for practice English. As i mentioned it was a long year, full of good things and also with problems. Came to the foreign country and start work in a place which is based on a different technique was not so easy.

A lot of news and changes were making me confused. But really good side was that i was mentally ready that i will face up to a lot of news. Time by time everything become more easy and clear for me. If i remind to myself my first days in Bullerbyn it was completely different to compare with how it is today. In a first days i didn’t know how to speak with kids, or about what to speak, but after i get used with environment that Bullerbyn was making for me i learned how to be in Bullerbyn and how to communicate with kids better and better.

All this things took a long time, it didn’t happen in a one week or two week, i had to be emotional strong and patient about all those process. After a one year of volunteering i learned how much the people around you are important, how much sometimes we need support and help, sometimes the person that will describe to us the situations that we aren’t understanding, those are the things that Bullerbyn was giving to me during the whole year. I learned that the most important in our community was to be just real and rare you, to be open for others, share positive energy, even negative energy and try to solve problems together. To some up i can say that This year gave me really important work experiences and i discovered new skills in myself. Today i know more about Free Democratic educational systems and i’m so happy for that. In Georgia we don’t have Free Democratic schools and i will be a person who will bring this experience and knowledge in Georgia.
