Bad Days and Timmy Tim

just when i thought i was having a bad day, this little man strolls in, wraps his arms around you and give me a kiss on the cheek.

teaching kindi was probably one of the most challenging experiences of the year. for the first three months, these kids cannot communicate with you in the slightest. you might be able to get the alphabet out of them  and the rest is charades practice (which i have mastered over the year). but now looking back, i’ve realized that it has been the most rewarding experience. i have seen these kids go from no english, to being able to communicate and have small conversations with them. out of the 100+ kids i have taught this year, i’m going to miss my kiddos most of all.
