Pich – IT & Science Teacher, KVLC

I first heard about computers at Primary School, and then I felt excited but also scared because I heard seniors say that using a computer was really hard!

When I learned the basics in PLF’s computer classes I really enjoyed it and then I chose IT for my degree because I wanted to learn more, because I thought this skill will be developed in the country soon. Also, this skill was not very popular with women, so now I feel very happy to be the first female IT teacher in my hometown, and to help educate the children in the village. 

A very serious Pich in primary school!

Having fun in Arts & Crafts classes

I have been working here 5 years; I first started with Arts & Crafts and helping in the library. Then I trained for 2 months with the computer lead teacher, and fill my dream to be an IT teacher. I was so excited!

Computers are important for students because they are very useful when studying at university and they are used everywhere now in the workplace and doing business. We can also help students through basic computer training to make it easier in their lives in general because now technology spreads around the world, and as we use this knowledge, we increase the benefit to ourselves, family and society.

Last year I also started joining science classes with Ravuth to learn from him. He is a really good teacher and I learned a lot! Now that he has returned to Preah Vihear, I run the classes by myself. I love all the science classes, but especially about Skeletal System and Human Anatomy. I see that the students on the other hand prefer to study about biomes, environment and animals. 

Assisting students with their biomes projects

For teaching, I like both science and computer. For science classes, students can learn more about the human body and the earth through modern technology research. And for computer class, it can motivate students to use them at the core of their university study, and for their work in the future. 

All of this work, I love. Computers and science are important parts of life. Through education, by providing them with the latest knowledge and technology, I can help my students, their families, and the community grow.

For as little as $10 a month, you could contribute to the ongoing education of our students. $120 goes a long way in Cambodia: that’s 5 village children on the road to education, with access to school and clean drinking water for half a year. Or a million other things, all of which coalesce into the tools needed for life to change for the better!
