|One of many odd items left in my classroom.|
All things considered, the transition back to work has gone very smoothly but it's still stressful. New wake up hours, new routine for everyone, new students at school and just trying to figure out what has changed/not changed since I was at work last. That, and the large amount of junk that has accumulated in my classroom in the past year. I turned into a cleaning service for a while yesterday...wiping shelves, disposing of broken desks/chairs, etc.
Despite any negatives, I love my job and it's been great catching up with my colleagues and my former (current) students. I've also met some very interesting new students who I am looking forward to teaching and learning more about. Part of what I love about my job is that I meet these students from other countries who don't know much English so you get to learn more and more about them as their English improves and it's absolutely fascinating to hear their stories.
As I said, this was a quick update and I'm still working on lots of fun things for my blog in between everything else....i.e. more giveaways of course. I am off to get ready for work!
