So I am sure that many of you are wondering what it's like in my school. I've been busy and without internet for a couple of days at home, so I've been a bit lazy about posting. Sorry for that, but can I use the excuse that I've been busy soaking up the experience? Would that satisfy? Below are some pictures of my classroom without the kids in it. I do have pictures of their sweet selves in it too, but I need to check on how okay it is to post those before I do.
This is from the student area looking towards the carpet and teacher desks.
This is the corner stone of what we do. We teach these kids to exhibit all these characteristics so that they become more internationally minded people.
In the student desk area looking towards the board and my slightly crooked word wall.
In the student area looking towards our bilingual Unit of Inquiry board where the kids put up all the stuff they are learning. It's awesome!!

Our room is one of the smallest in the school but it's just right for my teaching partner, Nilay, and I. It's cozy and easy to monitor the students. There is a wonderful amount of light and open space for the kids and for us. Some of the rooms are huge and really lovely, all have loads of windows and lots of natural light. And some even have balconies!! It's a great place to be... so come and visit me!!! ;)
