JUST THE TWO (OR FOUR) OF US
This week it’s been just the two (or three or four) of us in both of my after school English classes. I teach an extra fifth grade, as well as sixth grade lesson each week for students interested in strengthening their English skills.

Last week I dreaded being at school. I wasn’t ready for vacation to end, and felt a little burned out. This week things have gone better, and I feel much more excited about the semester. It helped to have the chance to connect with students again.
At the end of last semester, one of my students came up to me and said I’m a good teacher for staying. She said all the other Guest English Teachers she's had have always left after one year. It makes me feel really special to connect to my students in this way. I know I’m here for a reason, and I know it matters to them.
