SoMe GoOd ThInGs Do HaPpEn

I have been through difficult times lately and yesterday night I finally knew the whole truth. If it hurt me? Too much indeed. However, I won’t waste my time tumbling on my misery and making all that pain grow more than I can stand. The only thing I’ll say is that I know now that all my tears of the past days and the ones yet to come are something he didn’t deserve at all. Not even one of them.

Let me tell you about the good things.
Classes started last week and everything went right. The first day of class I was a little nervous because for the first time in a long time I had to teach a group quite big, 20 students. Last year my groups had no more than 10 students each. I was also jumpy because last year I taught only beginners and now I have to teach people who are taking international examinations. I was/am afraid of having lost most of the language because I didn’t have the chance of practicing it as I should have.
Anyway, the class was nice and I left the room pleased but really tired.
When I got home I kissed my kids, prepared dinner and when they went to bed I sat in front my PC to check my emails and the blog. Surprise!!! I had a message from one of my students saying he had enjoyed the class a lot, that it was “Analia’s style” and that I was the best. Nice ah? I know I’m not the best, but it was a rewarding and flattering remark. After that, a student I had last year called me and asked if I could be his teacher again because he doesn’t understand a word his new teacher says LOL. His teacher is my co-worker and I know he’s real good!!! But in general, beginner students tend to view through rose-tinted glasses the first teacher they have. It happened to me long time ago; I remember with love my first English teacher, she means a lot to me even today.
Those are some of the good things that happened to me regarding my work.
Now, about my kids. Sebastián started his 3rd year in high school last week, and he seems to be very motivated. His mood has changed a lot, but from time to time he forgets all the teenager behavior and hugs me tight. Nice!! He has always been very sweet.
And Manu? I’m still waiting an answer from a school to see if he can enter. I hope he can because being at home all the time is not the best for him at his age.
Today he woke me up with a kiss on my nose and whispered, “Mum, you look like and angel when you sleep” Awwwwwww!! Isn’t he adorable? Of course he continued by saying, “can I have my breakfast now?” I had to get up very quicky, good moments don’t last forever, but I had a big smile on my face the whole morning.

Ah! And Dami is coming today from Durazno. It’s been three weeks since the last time I saw him. I hope we both have a good time.

I love you all

    LOL….I love the cartoon picture…still a child at heart!
    I know how worried you were about starting with the new class; I am so glad that it went well and can understand an ex pupil wanting their “special” teacher back. You have a special quality that shines through from your blog; it is no surprise that your pupils will see that in you “in the flesh”. A good teacher (of any subject) is so important…
    As for Sebastian…those teenage years are so difficult both on parent and child….it’s good to hear he will stil give his loving Mum a hug! Our teenage grandson!…well all I can say is that the occasional “grunt” is the most coversation we get from him…unless there is food offered!…lol And sweet Manu…ahhhh…a wonderful start to your day. Have a great time with Dami….lots of laughter is prescribed.
    Take care Analia (an angel you are…asleep and awake)

    Im so pleased your first day went so well, its the good teachers that I remember also, the ones who did more than deliver information, they enabled participation and interaction, this Im sure is one of your skills, making learning a fun experience and leaving the pupil wanting more. Its lovely that your students make time to tell you how they enjoy having you as their teacher.

    Awwww what a delightful way to start a day…Little manuel just lovely, and sebastian too…hugs are always special

    Now Dami:)) Enough said lol…Enjoy your time together…You deserve happiness Ani in all the many ways it comes to you
