I studies (cuz that's what the cool kids do - no that's a blatant lie).
I started school. (I am ALREADY tired.)
Right: Rain the cat. Left: Thunder the cat (she acts more like a puppy though)
I don't like suitcases - they always means you are going somewhere. I am a very stationary person - not a fan of travel - if I could be anything I'd be a plant. They don't have to deal with air travel.
I got reeeaally bored at the air port - I drew my future house. Note that I made two kitchens.
My lovely sister came to pick me up.
They had been awaiting my arrival.
Goal for this year: ORGANIZATION!!! I am usually a mess...
Summer fades away...
It feels like centuries ago that I taught back in Sri Lanka but I need to keep reminding myself it hasn't even been a month yet. Sri Lanka is a complete (half a) world away and I miss the community I entangled myself into so much! I of coarse especially miss the students. Their smiling faces reminded me how fun being a kid was. (I know I'm no grown up - but I feel like I am not even half as fun as they are...) SO. Here's what's up: time is tight. School is offering up more work than ever so my 24 hour day goes by quick and I always end up very tired at the end. I'm balancing EARSL, school, and of coarse studying for upcoming exams it is no easy job. However I know it'll all end up fine. I think.
So here is what is in the works RIGHT NOW
I am working on rewriting -- i.e. remaking -- each week I taught. I was in such a time-crunch that the posts were more like regurgitations than reflections. I am hoping to give a clearer perspective about what I did -- I want to share the thoughts and the emotions as well as everything I saw and heard and everything else in between. I am so excited for this project -- I will most likely be posting each week or so and making with a journal-esque style. This will take priority just because I need to write before I forget everything :).
Coming up ~ What's in this blog's future?
So after my writing adventure I will be doing the following things:
Reflecting on what I did well as a teacher.
Listing out what I need to improve on and future goals (ex. a posttest for the 3rd graders).
Starting the Lesson Library!!!
So that's all for now I am hoping the next post will be up by the end of this week but I might need an extension until the next week!
Thunder likes to help with school work.
So. Much. Math. Just...so much...
