I am gaining more confidence in the classroom, every lesson teaches me something. Some of my classes have switched from being classes that I dread, to classes that I cannot wait to teach. I gave one of my fifth graders a high five once, and now every time I walk through the hallway or when I get to class, I am immediately surrounded by 15 fifth graders with extended hands. I’ve even got a handshake with one of them.
I’m still working on lesson planning. It’s something that my counterparts and I need to work on. I’m excited to see what kinds of activities we can come up with together.
My school also loves a good performance. In the nearly three months that I’ve been here, I’ve seen my kids dance about ten times. The week before I went to Lviv was our second English week, which culminated in a Charlie Chaplin themed performance by my kiddos. Check out a clip here!
