Hard to believe that this is the last day of September (gasp!). Although, in truth, I really wouldn't say this month has flown by. It seems like ages since the first couple of weeks of school when I was a little bit afraid that my head might pop off do to the stress of trying to come up with lessons for a bazillion and one classes. But now, at long last, we are up to our full teaching staff, and everything should fall into some sort of normalcy. So I suppose it's time to lay out my schedule.
Monday: 9-10:30 L3s (these are our highest level daily students!)
10:45-12:15 L2s (they're a little lower than last year, but still great!)
5-6:30 Upper Intermediates (Tammy's class from last year)
Tuesday: 9-10:30 L3s
Now the really crazy bit is that every couple of weeks, due to Tammy's odd schedule Ill have to teach L2s from 10:45-12:15, but today I just had the one class which is why I'm kickin' it at home all afternoon.
4:30 Hanging out with Roshani and maybe Laura or Tammy at Bartholomeus. It was Rosh's idea to make this a habit, and it works for me :)
Wednesday: 9-10:30 L3s
5-6:30 Upper Intermediates
Thursday: 9-10:30 L3s
10:45-12:15 L2s on rotation with Tammy
1:15-2:45 Employment Services every other week
5-6:30 Intermediate 1 (Naomi's class from last year)
(can you tell that Thursday's have the potential to be rather long?)
Friday: 10:45-12:15 L2s
So there you have my work schedule in a nutshell. Those of you with skype who'd like to hook up and chat, let me know. I have relatively decent internet at home now. It's not 100% reliable, but if worse comes to worse, and we have a time planned and it doesn't seem to be working there is always the possibility of me being at school or packing my computer to Bartholomeus, which is a whole lot closer and has free internet with purchase. So I'd love to chat with people when I've got the time. Keep in mind it's a 9 hour time difference from PST so while it's 3:33 in the afternoon here my computer says it's 6:33 at home. It can make things a little sticky.
Well, not much else on the news list for now. Hope to find times to chat with people now that my schedule is official :)
