  1. It gets easier when you learn to read the schedule on the board in the teachers’ room. I can’t tell you how many times I looked up only to realize I was completely alone because everyone else had gone somewhere for some kind of school activity.

  2. This is so true! Even if you’re doing a wonderful job, when you’re a teacher, it’s so hard to get some respect! And wouldn’t you think that the other teachers would want to befriend you? You’re alone together against the fight against hoards of children!

    Well I wish you luck in this endeavor, not everyone has the courage to do what you’re doing. And from reading this post, it seems like you have the right outlook on things 🙂

    • Thanks very much! I try not to take it too personally on the days I feel left out…it’s a strong cultural thing here, but I’ve gotten used to it after two years. Focus on the good…try not to think about the bad. The kids are awesome and that’s what counts! (And yes, I try to approach things with a sense of humour!).
