If y0u have been following this blog up till now you might think that all I have been doing is traveling around. Not the case, I have actually been teaching five days a week. It has been a great experience, I lucked out and got a very modern school with great kids. Today was my last day, and I am definitely going to miss them more that I thought I would. As a whole they are super-friendly and very eager to interact with the resident foreigner, and for the most part are excited about learning English. I feel like on the average day I got about 500 hello’s and 100 hand shakes. It was kinda like being a politician w/mini-sized constituents.
The third grade class, they are really well-behaved
Fourth grade class, this class is pretty small which is good, I definitely feel like I get to know the students a lot better and in a smaller class and waste less time trying to get the kids under control
My co-teacher Eteri, she's great
Fifth grade class, they are really good kids but can get a little rambunctious at times
Some of my students helping me carry a bag to the bus stop, which is also the entrance to a military base
Snowball fight! I definitely got hit a few times
First Graders, they are learning the Georgian and English alphabets at the same time
These kids could be a trouble, but they were some of my favorites
They loved the football!
Watch out gogo!
