This weekend will consist of taking a photog class. Its exciting and scary at the same time but Im hopeful that it will help me lots...and I will also be taking another class before the month is over.
And,yes, I will be here for the duration of the Winter break and its all good.
The kids are good. They are a joy to work with and have genuine smiles for me daily. Definite perk working with small children no matter what language they speak! I have a student who has recently started to translate for me.None of my kids speak English but understand it really well. This varies based on class and students. Its funny because I can tell that her translations are pretty much on point. After telling them today that next week is the last before a break where noone will be at school and teachers will be travelling, I go on to start naming places teachers will be flying to. I only name America before she chimes in with Canada and London.I was told she went to Thailand this past summer.Also one of my kids has his own ipad for his use only.WOW.
One frustration: The fact that we are trying from many angles to speak with a certain someone about what we need to do,how we can be more effective,how we can teach the kids,log results,teach and learn from one another AND engage non English speakers continues to fall on deaf ears but not for lack of trying.Its frustrating to speak the same language but feel as though you dont.Continuous work in progress. And the truth will prevail because there are definitely some untruths being told!
Loredo Cantina salsa was wonderful today :-D.
Here is to hoping we get to see Sea Shadow tonight
