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
