Bag full of books

There are days like this that I am so thankful for my friend Jan that lives downstairs.

Passing out flyers has resulted in the opportunity to teach English to a couple little Chinese girls. They are pre school age so here is where I am so thankful for Jan. I didn’t plan on teaching preschool but it’s a good situation ( I think) and so I’ll do this for the next month and see if it’s a good fit. My only problem is, I wasn’t planning on pre school English. My resources, books, etc… are home…in Canada and this will be private one on one in my home with the parents present!

A call to Jan, and a visit helped so much. Having two little boys, one that will start school in August and one that is in his second year, she has some of the things I can use. So I borrowed a few books and toys and now I need to plan and prepare. It’s just so much easier when it’s higher level elementary or middle school. We can just sit at the kitchen table…

BUT preschool…Then environment and teaching style needs to be a little different. So today I have been thinking preschool, well until I got a call this afternoon to teach my Grade 4,5 & 6 class tomorrow and they’ve changed the curriculum a bit. Oh my it keeps me on my toes, good thing I’m flexible!

Hope you’re having a great day!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
