Hello Again

I have joined the land of the living again after an extremely busy couple of months. Going back to work has kept me on my toes. The city where I live is rapidly growing. We are experiencing severe growing pains. As a result, the school where I teach has more kids than we can handle. There have been many changes and adjustments. I now teach four different subjects. I teach three sixth grade writing classes, one seventh grade writing class, one study skills slash computer class, and one enrichment writing classes. Four preps are enough to drive anyone crazy. I have also changed classrooms. My mother had surgery today. She is not doing well at all. Her recovery is iffy at best. Hopefully, I will be back for a while.

Wishing your mother well and you strength. That is a lot of classes to get ready for each day.

I can see how the teaching can be keeping you busy. When I taught EFL in Bangkok, I usually had 4-5 classes with around 30-40 in each class.

Wow that seems like it would be a bit confusing teacher different grades classes. as you are. My daughter is in 6th grade now and my son is in 2nd.
