after one week


after one whole week of running around trying to manage kids of 10 yr olds... i realized tht being a teacher is tough job. esp when u're trying to teach them a new language. the patience u need to deal w/each child. and the creative activities u need to hv up ur sleeves to keep them interested and active and happy and learning at the same time...and keeping ur authority so they don't run all over u— it's def not an easy job at all. it gives me new respect to all the good englishe teachers here in taiwan.
i had a blast tho, because we were team USA. every morning we'd sing and play games, then read and learn new games. have our little boxed lunch and go outdoors to do all kinds of sports. afterwards, we'd jump into the pool and cool off from the very hot mid-day weather. temp averaging 35 degrees celcius and 130% humidity? was def very hot n humid day. so the pool turns out to b everyone's favorite activity. then we'd hop on the bus and ride back into taipei city.
it's def an experience i won't forget.
i learned a lot. and i hv Konraad or K to thankful for inviting me to join them as counselors.
still, i'm glad it is over, cuz it's just way too hot to b outdoors at noon these days in taiwan.

well, today will b my first day at work at the ACES summer camp. teaching kids english in play environment. i've always wanted to c how this is all about. i hope it'll go ok. n that i don't suck big time! anyway, i'm up way earlier than i wanted to. tho i do need to meet the bus of kids at the MingShen area at 8:40am, which means i need to b on tht locat 262 bus by 8am!
i've always wanted to propose a class tht's more like teaching art/ art history/ appreciation to kids in english. maybe i can do this... well, IF ths week turns out ok.
