The Kiddos

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.

tlg, students, georgia

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

Second graders

First Graders, they are learning the Georgian and English alphabets at the same time

These kids could be a handful, but they were some of my favorites

They loved the football!

About the country not the state

I am teaching English in Georgia through the TLG program through December 23rd. It's fun.

    politician with mini-constituents, hmmm, rather a good insight I think.
    And might the more troublesome students be part of the attempt by the cosmos to regain balance?
