My cell phone is back (actually they sent me a new one) and my life is
way easier. It’s nice not to be totally isolated in my [AIR
My classroom is at least 16 million times better than last year.
Air conditioning being the biggest reason but also because my view is
now huge gorgeous trees instead of a bright white cafeteria roof, I
have a practically new computer with good speakers so I can listen to music
at school, I have a cute old teacher desk, I have TWO closets (instead
of one), I only had to decorate four bulletin boards (my old room had
6), and did I mention the air conditioning? If you made it to the
end of this really long sentence, you probably realize that my life at
school has improved immensely and I’m not dreading going in on Monday
(at least not dreading it too much). I met a few students today
during 6th grade orientation and I realized that I’d forgotten how
little English they know when they come to America. It’s pretty
scary the thought of having to teach them.
Tonight, Nik and I along with Brody and Dans F and G (of Alaska trip fame) went to see Little Miss Sunshine. Not a movie to take your kids to but HILARIOUS!
