A new adventure!
I’m always amazed when I first get to a new country. There are so many things to learn, look at, eat, and know. Once I arrived, I knew I had found a place I could stay a while.
Along with a few ESL classes, I am the new Science teacher at an International School. I’m spending my Winter Break creating science units and lessons for grades 3-8. It’s So, So, SO much fun! That is not sarcastic. I’m really enjoying it.
My classes are truly international, with students from Europe, the Middle East, the Balkans, Asia, and the Americas. I’ve been welcomed in from the first day and have met many other expats as well. What a fun place I’m living in!
Dancing on the weekends never disappoints! And, I have a new puppy, Zoe. Technically, she’s not mine, my bestie rescued her, but I get to claim her while I live here 🙂 Zoe’s about 7 months old and had been hit by a car when very young. She’s got a funny little gait, but she keeps up on our walks. Getting to know how to be a good doggie second mommy has had its ups and downs, but mostly ups! Yeah for conquering fears a little more every day.
I’m grateful for a good job, in a good city, with good people. It’s the season to show our love for humanity. And so, I will also be doing some volunteer work at the local orphanage hospital. Holding and comforting tiny newborns and infants sounds like a pretty sweet way to celebrate the Season well. I will let you know how that goes, because I expect pure, exuberant awesomeness to come from those days.
I need to get back to planning for a semester of science, but I wanted to check in with everyone and say Hi! Go be awesome.
Tell ’em Ms. McKahsum told you to!
