Teaching Takes It Out of You

No, I am not dead, although I really did feel like it.

Phil was ever so kind to take this picture of me when I zonked out last Friday night after my first week of teaching. 20 classes at 40 minutes each doesn’t sound like a whole lot, and in a perfect world it isn’t, but when you are teaching little devils, those 20 classes feel like 2 years.

And the good news is . . . I get to begin those two years all over again tomorrow. Yea, for me, I guess.

This week I am teaching the little brats about friendship and best friends. Maybe they will be so into it that they will be hanging on every word that comes out of my mouth. Maybe they will actually ask me questions and want to participate and pay attention. Maybe they will actually stop talking in Chinese the entire class and become fluent in English. Ha. I’m allowed to dream, aren’t I? I’ll faint if just the boys behave themselves.

Guess this is enough for now. I will continue to post pictures over the next few days. I have a lot of them.

Until then.
