By Kittichote Hoiyeephoo, Fulbrighter 2005
Ajarn Kittichote Hoiyeephoo found his first time in America as a grantee under the Fulbright Administrative Exchange Program from Samakkhiwitthayakhom School a reward of life.
Forty-five days at Harrell Budd Elementary School in Dallas gave him more insight understanding of the U.S. school system, school curriculum, and vocational modules, and management of community colleges.
In addition, he noticed that school quality is ensured by staff development system and student assessment. At individual level, students are treated with care in accordance to their personal ability and needs. While the gifted students are encouraged to develop their talents since their kindergarten age, the non-native English students as well as the disable students are provided with necessary supports including special tutorial classes and transportation.
Beyond his academic experience, Ajarn Kittichote enjoyed his staying the U.S. full of friendships and funs. He had chances to reunite with a former American volunteer working in Chiang Rai in 1963-1964 in Washington D.C., and to meet two Samakkhiwitthayakhom alumni who live in Dallas. All these are highlights of his Fulbright experience.
