2.Around 90 new teachers are coming. Im pleased that the group is small. I suspect that they will be ok definitely. Our group was half that size and both groups are but a small portion of the massive summer groups. I hope this is a trend that sticks and their experience and transition will, undoubtedly, be much smoother. Congrats to those coming. When packing, leave expectations at home. They are heavy and will bog you down!!
3.hmmm. What was three?shoooot!!!!!!! I dont know BUT I sent for my husbands visa yesterday and it has been marked URGENT. Im happy for the break we had. Missing each other is sometimes a good thing. When he comes, I will be a tour guide-a great one I hope. . .There is still lots I havent seen.
oh, and Ill add a fourth. The stress of having a student teacher is gone. She understands the difficulty of language acquisition and I dont look stupid to her Im sure,lol. That was my only concern. I have been able to teach her a lot and we talk about work as well as the culture. She is a sweetheart and after one observation, she implemented my suggestions about her teaching. I was happy for her observation today with her professor. She seems to be a quick learner. Its hard for her to say pudding and its hard
for me to say 'listen' in Arabic,lol.
*there will be no pictures of the wedding as they are not allowed. I will, however, do my best to etch the details onto my brain so as to write about the wonderful and very private experience I am about to have. They say seeing is believing but you will simply have to take my word for it.
Ma salama for now my silent readers ;P
