Broken Crayons


Ms. Gillis, a preservice teacher on Prince Edward Island, decides to complete her International Teaching Practicum in Kenya. She can’t wait to start her adventure, leaving behind cold February days in Canada and (as she comes to learn) a well-stocked Island classroom. As she distributes a gift of crayons to her students, she soon realizes that she is the one who has the most to learn. Based on a true story that never grows old and one which carries a message for all.
