Earlier today we had a surprise which bodes well for my longevity at this school. The administration is being replaced at the end of the month and they told us a full month ahead of time! Unfortunately my second surprise came in typical Korean fashion.
It was 2:35 when the phone rang. My co-teacher usually answers the phone since its always for her but we were both busy putting jackets & backpacks on. She was trapped by a few students so I grabbed it and it happened to be for me. My principal Jane was calling to apologize for the late notice but my clinic at 3:00 was doubling in size.
Previously I worked one on one with a girl on phonics, reading & writing and now I’d have a class of two. I think this will ultimately make the class more fun for my students but I had to scramble to make copies and come up with a quick ice breaker.
The class went well, both girls had fun but we only got through about 1/4 of the work that I used to. We should pick up our pace a little bit but the clinic lessons I was doing were really designed as tutoring. I’ll rework some of the lesson before next week and should have another copy o the workbook for my new student by then.
