The ELA Department decided to use this worksheet to gauge student’s goals. It is a simple worksheet that the students can fill out on the first day. Go to my google drive to check it out. You can also edit it to your leisure.
I was recommended GoogleVoice as a teaching resource. This app allows people to use a separate phone number so others can call or message. Again this is a separate number that allows calls or messages to be sent to your personal phone without giving away your personal number. This is a great tool for teachers to use as you won’t have to give parents and students your personal number. There is a feature that allows incoming messages and calls to be disabled. This is also a great resource to record your communication between yourself, the parents, and the students.
Moving back to America was difficult. I had applied for jobs before coming home, but nothing came out of it. I had one interview and that didn’t pan out. After months of applying, I finally got a job.
Teaching in America scares me…I am wary of the amount of paperwork, the meetings, the lack of help from the parents and admin…but I enjoy teaching and I am looking forward to trying this out.
Later I will post pictures of my class, posters, and anything else soon
One thing I miss about Europe and living in Korea was the easy of travel. Even a weekend getaway via train is something I sorely miss.
I finally made the Blogilates kale smoothie…it was a hit with my younger sister and my mom, my dad doesn’t like it.
In Prague, Czech Republic my friend and I decided to go skydiving. We found a company, Skywalkers, that operated out of Prague. We did a tandem jump from 4,000 meters high and it was awesome. We bought a package that included video and pictures of our jump. The price for the jump and DVD+photos was 230 euros, about $312. It was awesome and I would recommend this company.
