1st day of School!

Wow, what a day!  First off, It is strange to be at work by 6:40 and leave before 2:30(actually most days we can leave at 2:15)!!  I didn’t have much time before the kids were coming into class with a bazillion(I know, it’s not a word)things!  I have 20 kids from about 7:00-10:00, then 19 more at 10:30 to 1:15(most days).

We started out the day with a flag ceremony which is held every Monday.  It was very nice ceremony…I will try to get a picture sometime.

The weird thing is that the kids eat lunch with me and then I have duty many days outside…not good for bathroom breaks, but I guess I will have to figure out something.

The kids are overall a great group of kids…a few that I will have to lay the smack down, but otherwise alright! 🙂  It is so strange on how some of the kids might have one parent from Japan and one from Mexico or one from Italy and one from Germany!

I have to speak in English and some of these kids knew what I was saying, but then answered me in Spanish!  It will be interesting…I’m going to have to slow way down.  Some kids really didn’t understand me, but some did and were a little sassy.  I think it will be a good year.  I know I will learn tons and the kids will too!  I hope I don’t feel as rushed…considering that I don’t have that much time with them.

      • Yes, the families are really quite mixed on backgrounds. Many are from Mexico, yet Cancun is a fairly “new” area compared to some cities. Yet some are from all over the world. It is really cool how I’ve met so many people from anywhere and everywhere!! 🙂

  1. Congrats on the first day of school. What a bunch of cuties. Looks like you’re doing a great job keeping them busy and productive. It’s nice you can plan for an hour when the kids are gone and then nap on the beach early in the afternoon. Have fun!
