It's always so hard to go back to class after a long holiday. Monday morning, I hopped in my car and looked down at the thermometer and saw "-26" YIKES! It made going back twice as hard.
I'm not quite sure why going back is hard because I LIKE my job. I love teaching Spanish, and the kids in my classes are getting used to the idea that I'm staying.
"Mrs. Aakhus? Do you think you'll come back next year?"
All I can say is "I hope so."
I'm loving that my Spanish is improving and that I can watch some movies and understand the movies -- but with Spanish subtitles while watching with the Spanish language turned on.
in Spanish 2 in Spanish... Do you know how absolutely cute it is to hear "Rrralphie!" with that trilled R! oh! how simply cute.
I love that.
At this point last year, I never thought I'd tell you "I want to teach Spanish." And I guess, that's funny how that works out sometime how life just happens to us while we're making other plans - oh - I know that's cliche' - but it's just how it is.
