I'm sure this breaks like every privacy rule in my contract... but whatever. since I'm leaving I've started taking pictures of my fav. students.
here are the twins that have won the "cutest kids" contest out of nearly 300 students. they started at 19 months and now can understand simple instructions and repeat some English words. they are hilarious. and they know it. 'cheeky' as our Brit teacher, Nicola, says.
and in a later class. after I nearly killed her classmate for being sooooo loud and I couldn't take it and picked him up with one arm, grabbed his books with the other and just as Nicola was starting to yell at/explain to the manager taht she can't teach her neighboring class with my child screaming him head off 'cause it's fun... I emerge from class, bearing said evil child on my hip, and propell him to the manager.
then I go back to teaching this cute girl. who subsequently behaved better then she had in months and months.
ok, mom, is this how I make the cute face to ham for the camera?
hmmm, let's see. is this how to do it? I can't remember.
wow, trying to be cute is boring. yawn. guess I'll just have to be cute without trying...
and then she gives me a hug at the end of class. I never ever ever expected this to be my life. more than anything I can't get over the shock.
