Public School in Tbilisi


Outside of the school.

**Be sure to view my Instagram Account to see students in action in chemistry, reciting the alphabet, and at recess.

Today I went to visit a public school in Tbilisi. It was very eye opening. On the outside of the school wall there was a bunch of graffiti. When I went inside, parts of the school looked like any other school and other parts where in disrepair. Throughout Tbilisi, it is not uncommon for the outside of the building to look run down, while the inside of the building is well kept.

I visited a 10th grade chemistry class and we walked into see a few elementary school grades. There were a few things that struck me, when we walked into the classroom, all the students rose from their chairs to greet us. When students spoke in class they needed to rise to address the class or the teacher. 

In the chemistry class, they were worked in groups to mix different chemicals to make the colors of the rainbow. It was cool to see the periodic table in Georgian and other science posters in Georgian. Can you understand what they are saying?

Stage/Theater

These are pictures from the elementary school. They did not look too different from our elementary school classrooms. The elementary classroom where all just redone. It was really nice to heart them count to 10, recite the alphabet, and tell us their name.

  1. I love the floor of that theater space. Such a classic feel to it. This looks like a tremendous experience!

    1. To be honest, the floor was a little sketchy as many pieces were not completely fastened to the ground. When I was in the space, it had the feel of a theater that was not being utilized and of a space that was not kept up as well as it could be.
