This was a short teaching week--only three days-- due to the fact that Thursday was an all day conference day and Friday was our monthy teacher meetings day. I was pretty nervous about the conferences, since I haven't really had much communication with many of the parents so far, and there is the communication barrier to think about.
The parents signed up for time slots during the day, and I had 14 of my 16 show up.. pretty good I think. It was really insightful in some cases (for example, I found out that one student who rarely turns in homwork didn't have to do homework in his previous schools in Canada and England.)
I also realized that here will probably be the only time in my life that I try to use my broken Spanish to communicate to a Korean mother with her broken Spanish. Very interesting. I hope we made some sense :)
Well, it is officially the weekend. I officially can not sleep in anymore. And.. I'm going to go do something. ByE!
