I love the group of kids that God gave me this year.
I have two groups of 11 and everything has worked
perfectly so far.
The only thing is:
Are 5th. graders' parent supposed to be
(let me find the adjective)
I can't find it.
Well, I would probably act the same way.

Here's a question

How can a teacher be disrespectful toward a
co-worker and talk to their kids about
and then we complain
when our kids
are mean to others.

The beginning is near....!

Every day we get close to the new school year here in Guatemala. Teachers, as you know, are the first to go back to school to prepare the classrooms, the material, the environment, everything!
I am truly grateful to God for giving me this job and allow me to be learning so many things these days through all the workshops and conferences we have received in these two days.
The school will beging an anti-bullying program which sounds really great and it sounds like we will have the perfect tools and preparations to stop that ugly movement before it begins!
I am really excited, which is surprising cuz I thought I wouldn't feel this way :)
There are some new teachers that are very friendly and tha't definetely a GREAT PLUS :)

The end

School year is over here in Guatemala. I must admit that having kids with ADD in my class for the firs time was not easy. I had zero knowledge about it and I had to educate myself on that.

I learned so much!

During this school year I grew up and I learned againg how to be light in the darkness, which is one of the reasons why the Lord took me to this school.

I'm not sure about what' going to happen next year, I don't know if I'm staying in this school, cuz part of me wants to go back to THAT SCHOOL where I really felt at home. As I was heading home today , I put it all in God's hands.... I told him that I'm scared of asking HIm what I really want because I don't know what's best for me ! He does! I'm confused right now.

I am absolutely CERTAIN that God made me to be a teacher but my heart really wants to know where He wants me to follow this calling.

I hope that He answers my prayers and could bring peace to this now anxious soul.

In the meantime, I gotta say one single note from a girl made my day and my school year I think! it says " THIS YEAR WASN'T THE BEST FOR ME (she had an injure in her back, she changed school in the middle of the school year, her parents are getting divorced) THOUGH I REALLY THANK GOD FOR BRINGING ME HERE TO THIS SCHOOL, WHERE I MADE REAL FRIENDS, WHERE I MET GOOD TEACHES, WHERE I LOST MY FEARS BUT MOSTLY CUZ I MET YOU. IF I HAD TO GO BACK TO THAT SCHOOL AND LIVING ALL THOSE TERRIBLE THINGS AGAIN, I'D DO IT... JUST TO MEET YOU AT THE END.


These tears rolling down my face say how much her words touched me and how much I thank God for letting me touch lives for HIS GLORY ONLY!

Being a teacher is a true journey of the heart and I do not want neither can do it on my own.

Good bye schoo year 2009

Good bye to my 24 sixth graders

Good bye to your laughter in the hallways

Good bye to your spanglish speeches

Good bye kiddos...

I'll never forget you all.

Outdoors !!!

School year will be over in 10 days so as part of the last activities we took 6th. graders to Zuriel Camp :)
We had a lot of fun and I can not believe how these kids of mine won't get tired of jumping, running playing! they're so full of energy!

I guess being 26 is not a great help !


Take a look!

Schools requires every student to do an oral presentation weekly, like.. kind of show and tell but harder, got it ?
