School doesn’t start until August 20th, but today was the first day of work. It went really well!
They(administrators) warned me that they didn’t have many supplies and the supplies they did have aren’t as nice as US(tape not as sticky, etc). Today I learned that the cork in bulletin boards doesn’t do well here, so we used cardboard!
Also, when going around and doing introductions…I was the only one that didn’t speak Spanish! Many of the teachers speak English though. I felt a little nervous and didn’t want to be the only one to give my intro in English, but oh well. I will learn!
Right away this morning in another teacher’s classroom, there was a huge cockroach! Awwww!!!
The staff was very warm and welcoming! I’m so excited to be here!!
This will definitely be a year where it might be a toss up between who learns more…my students or me? 🙂 teasing!
