First day of school

Yesterday was the first day of real school, not just an opening ceremony. I did my self-introduction for 4 classes.

1st Class: The first period was dead tired. Just like in America, students in first period are useless. I couldn't get any participation. Most did the turtle (heads shrink low, possibly into their shirt) when I asked them a question. The question game that followed the powerpoint worked...but was still not very fun considering how tired the students were.

2nd Class: This class has 2 specific students that are "too cool for school." I actually don't mind their class clown antics because it made the class more lively. Other students felt more comfortable answering questions apparently when these two were being asshole. It's a win and lose, I suppose.

3rd Class: I liked this class. They laughed at all the right points, participated in the game, and asked relevant questions.

4th Class: Same as the third. This class is cool.

One of students asked me how much I weigh. Haha, I did tell them they could ask me anything...

  1. Sounds like you describing your classes to me last year. At least the slower group is first and the day gets better as it moves along. You will be fine you're a gifted teacher. Love you and Happy Birthday again.
