Anyone, one, one, one, one.....
Hello, lo, lo, lo, lo.....
Yikes! I have missed all my readers! I have missed blogging!
I waited way too long between posts and to be honest, I'm a little mad at myself!
Oh where oh where to begin!
After I did the Dirty Girl Mud Run, I spent the rest of my summer anticipating the arrival of my niece Alivia.
Alivia made her appearance after 4 days of teasing us! Stubborn little thing already!
Unfortunately I haven't seen her since she was less than 24 hours old. They live about 100 miles away and it's been hard to get away.
|I made her this little bear! Her name is Alivia and she has Liv's birthday! So much fun!|
|A little bit of a cone head but she has a cute face! Even cuter now!|
|Family of 3! My brother was wrapped around that cute little finger a long time ago! The poor sap!|
So you have probably gathered by now that I am a teacher. For 2 years I taught 3rd grade and then spent 4 years teaching English as a Second Language to kindergarten and 1st graders.
This year I'm trying something a little different. I was invited by the ESL Dept. to pilot a program.
I am teaching students in MIDDLE SCHOOL!!!!!!!
How I went from kindergarten and 1st grade to 6/7/8 is beyond something my mind can comprehend.
Anyway, these students will have been in the country for less than a year. They will have little to no educational experiences and/or large gaps in their education.
I get students tomorrow, I'm starting out with 12, could be more, could be less. As students transition in and out of my class my numbers will change.
Hopefully I will blog more, exercise more and eat less!
