Hi everyone! This will be short, since I'm going to try my best to squeeze in a nap before I have to get ready for the reception tonight. After the last three days, I'm so tired right now... I'm not sure I'd be able to recite the alphabet... nevermind remember what country I'm in!
Today we learned all about what it's like to work in a U.S. school. You would think that it would be similar to what I've been doing over the last five years... and in many ways it is. But there are also some differences that are on the horizon that I might find a challenge to adjust to! I'll comment more on them later down the line when I've had more experience and can give a fairer interpretation. ;o)
Tomorrow we're all being split up after breakfast and are being taken to our teaching districts. Which means tonight is our last night as one big, happy VIF group! But I am excited to see my community, find out where I'll be living and finally start settling in. There's lots of stuff to do on my checklist -- so if you don't get another update for a little while, it's because I'm busy getting established and/or I haven't gotten my internet connection set up yet! The computers at the hotel (and the free wireless in the rooms) has been nice to have over the last two days -- but I have to say goodbye to that tomorrow as well.
Take care everyone -- Have great weekend! :o)
