Teaching With Your Feet

Posted by Randy LeGrant | Jun 7, 2012 2:40:00 PM

As we send a ton of people to volunteer abroad and teach abroad in the coming weeks, many are asking for ideas on what to teach when they are abroad.  Can you Teach Abroad or Volunteer Abroad with your feet?  Well, you can "walk the talk!"  But this video below is about much more than that.  The principle can be used as you go abroad and meet so many new and exciting people.  Look for the lessons where you least expect them to appear.

My business partner's son, Mark Morgan, is the owner (and camera man, editor and producer) of Open Road Movies.

From the movie, Stools.

His newest film (shorter than 4 minutes) has been selected to appear at a film festival next week in Brooklyn, NY.  Simply named Stools, this movie will leave you spell-bound.  You will watch it multiple times.

Stool maker, Sentayehu Teshale in Ethiopia, will astound you with what he can do with his feet that most of us cannot do with our hands.  This film is amazing and will surely do well in Brooklyn.  "There are people who write or paint with their legs.  Painting with legs is easy.  It only requires mental focus.  This requires physical power." - Sentayehu Teshale.

We have embedded the film below.  We know you're going to enjoy it.
