Muallimin and Muallimat schools in Yogyjakarta

AUA Director Ben Orbach and Indonesia country coordinators Ayu Rahmawati and Suci Lestari Yuana met with the leadership of the Muallimin and Muallimat schools in Yogyjakarta today.  In 2013, unofficial ambassador Stephanie Hallinan taught English to girls at the Muallimat school.  With a big smile, one of the school’s administrators recalled how Stephanie also taught them country line dancing and salsa.  Creative Learning will begin sending unofficial ambassadors to both schools on a year round basis in January through a new study abroad program at Gadjah Mada University.
