My computer has been upgraded from a Pentium dual core with 2GB Ram and a 7 minutes start-up time to a Core i3 with 4GB of Ram with a 1 minute start-up time and they put my OS in English!

It's a happy, happy, HAPPY day!

First week back to school this semester, and for class I've been having the students basically do 2 truths and a lie, vacation themed. One girl wrote about how her Australian bf came to visit her for the last month, and that he goes home this week. After class, she came up and said that she had wanted to introduce him to me, but was sad cuz she couldn't find me at the opening ceremony. So at the end of school today, she came into the teacher office dragging him behind her and we just chatted for about 30 minutes. She was so excited to introduce us, it was adorable! (She's a first year high schooler who should be a second year because she took a year off and studied in AU for a semester.)

The look of shock on my new first grade students(middle school who were my elementary school students last year as well) faces when I came in the school was priceless!  :laugh: I told them many times I would be here. I'm actually ready to come back and get back into a routine again. :)

Anyone who's out, if you taught afterschool, I'll buy you a beer if you could tell me if it was added to your severance.

Surprisingly the "day of change" led to... not many changes.  At least not any immediately apparent ones.  Two teachers ended up not leaving (and one is the funny guy so that's great) and we only got three new ones. 

Because of a new student, we're not combining two tiny classes at my main school.  Which actually simplifies things so that's cool.  And we have an art teacher again!  I guess the one student tipped the student populace over the magic number to allow us funding for extra subjects.  Baller

My school just had a welcome ceremony for the kindergartners. Serious cuteness overload! And there is a girl:boy ratio of 11:5 so that makes my dreaded 30 mins a week teaching time much less dreaded  :azn:

Careful about that. I taught 30 minute Kindy classes for a year as part of my schedule at an elementary school at one point, but when the POE found out, I had to stop. Apparently even if the Kindy/Preschool is physically attached to an elementary school, they're sometimes actually separate entities as far as paperwork goes, and since our contracts forbid us from working for more than one employer, that's a no-go.

I'm not saying that's definitely the case for you, since it may well actually be part of your school legally. Hell, even if it isn't, you couldn't just... not care  :laugh:. What the POE doesn't know won't hurt you, haha. It's possible your school doesn't even know it could be an issues, too. Mine sure didn't, and they were like "What? Why don't you want to teach them anymore?" when I told them I have to stop.

I loved teaching the little ones and was super bummed when I to stop, but I wasn't really looking to cause any potential contract/legal problems.

well in a couple years, last years kindies will be in my lowest class. And I cannot wait. Those kids are some of the most adorable little students I have seen. And have been attempting to say say "hi teacher" since last year. I am amped not only for their willingness to try. But ugh... they need to stay this cute. Once they hit my lowest grade it is like someone turns on the coffee machine.

First dat teaching at this new school and the kids are super low level compared to what i'm used to BUT THEY'RE LITTLE ANGELS (so far)! I don't even hear them screaming through the halls on their way to class! There's no punching each other in the lunch line! No stabbing each other with pencils! Even tho I think they collectively spoke the same amount of English as one of my first graders would on a 20 minute bus ride to school, they're eerily well behaved o.o

Technical teacher is legit here for another year! Looks like he's head teacher this time too. Good for him. Also, great for the whole office that he's still here because he gets along with everyone and is the buffer between the teachers and the idiot admin guy. If not for that tool the science teacher probably would have stayed another year.

I was feeling a little down and out on Tuesday, because a bunch of my students were missing from class and some other teachers classes had been cancelled so they could go to the WBC game in Seoul to support their team. Then yesterday at lunch, another teacher came over and gave me a ticket to the game last night so I could go with the school. It was a lot of fun and the students were happy to see me. I was even given a  flag and sign to hold, though I didn't know what it said.
