05 - Unexpectedly Head Teacher - Laura Kircough

Laura Kirkough had a great life teaching in the UK. Over the course of 10 weeks, she found herself unexpectedly living in Sierra Leone as the head teacher of a school of disabled children. Hear here inspiring story, get influenced by her courage, and learn a little more about education here in Salone. Also, hang around to the end. She’ll tell you how to ask to use the restroom in Welsh!


Laura told us she’s from Wales and made reference to her childhood traditional clothes. And Katie was able to beg for those pics and Laura relented.
