“My students loved every minute of the speaker's presentation and learned a great deal about China's culture and what life is like for elementary aged students. The speaker was great with my students and answered their questions in the sincerest ways and they most definitely benefited from this presentation. She's welcome back to our school anytime.”

“We had a wonderful morning with Ms. Phurchhoki Sherpa! She was energetic and related so well with the children. She taught us about what it was like to go to school in Nepal, what the climate is like there, and how she gets back and forth to and from America. She showed us some wonderful pictures. The students were enthralled and they asked many questions. It was great to meet her!”

Bonnie Lull, 3rd Grade Teacher, Kearsarge Regional Elementary School, New London, NH , says:

“Mr. Namgay Phuntsho Tshering, from Bhutan, did a fantastic job. He was very upbeat and professional. He brought many items from his native country for the kids to explore such as a flag, post cards, mask, and the traditional uniform. My class learned many fascinating facts about his country and culture and we had a great question and answer session. We all agreed he did a great job and inspired us to learn more about different cultures. Thank you!”
