On Monday I noticed that my classroom now has a floor! Yay! Only windowpanes, a door, and finished walls to go!
On Tuesday I spoke at the PTA meeting in front of all the parents. In Spanish. My face was bright red the whole time and I had to field questions about my new discipline plan, but they all seemed to understand and like my little presentation. Then I sat for three more hours through the longest PTA meeting in history, not even trying to understand what they were saying by the end.
On Wednesday we celebrated Valentines Day by making Valentines and learning related words. I have been receiving little cards, flowers, and candies ever since. One student gave me three Valentines!!!
On Thursday the horses got out. I have no idea whose they were or where they came from, but there were about ten horses wandering around town all day.
On Friday I lay out in the sun and read. My family thought I was really weird and they all came out to see what silly Teacher was doing. Why would anybody want to lay out in the sun, and on the ground no less!
This is La Estrella. Half the time I´m in awe of its beauty and the other half I´m wondering what the hell I´m doing here. But at the end of the day, I think I´m pretty happy to be here. Pura Vida!
