My Students and Felt Filled Classroom

Holy frijoles, Batman! Can you believe I've been back in Korea for more than a month?!? The time has flown by. I have yet to get a phone or internet because I can't do that without my ARC (Alien Registration Card). I believe I really should have gotten it by now, but the school says next week. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Anyway, I seem to settling in. My apartment is still kinda shitty, but I'll take care of that once I get a real paycheck. Work is good. They work our asses off, but I do prefer it to my old school where I wasn't allowed to do anything lesson plan wise. At GATE, I'm pretty much able to do what I want, as long as I teach the concepts I'm supposed to.

I've already fallen in love with my students. Well, most of them anyway. Right now I have 9, but I'm sure more will come soon. According to my principal, just everyone wants to get into my class haha! Oh yeah, I'm that good ;). Nah, really though, people just want IN at that school in general. Apaprently it's a pretty good school. I mean, they DID hire me!

I may have told some of you out there about my felt filled classroom. GATE believes that every inch of wall space should be covered in felt...that's right, FELT! My co-teacher, June and I put a lot of hours into decorating Garnet class (all of our classrooms are named after gems), and I think it looks pretty great...even if it does look like a rainbow puked felt all over!

This is my loft. I've always wanted a classroom with a loft:)

A felt filled wall...I Spy Vowels

Another felt filled wall and my awesome TV. I never use the white board. I have a computer and projector in my classroom and both are connected to the TV.

Teachers' Desks.

Now pics of my cute kids :)

My twins, Tony and Ricky.






Chloe...she doesn't like her photo taken at all!

And here they are working very hard.

Guess that's all for now. I'll post some apartment pics soon. I wanna do before and after:)
Love you all!
