When the going gets tough

Posted on October 27, 2009 at 2:54 AM

Week 3 and the pressure is beginning to bite. We have lost one of our students. She flies back to the US tomorrow. I guess you don´t always know if this is for you until you actually get to grips with the course. Her empty chair sat forlornly in class yesterday.

I fear the wheels may come off one or two more bandwagons this week.

Several students have gone into lessons this week woefully under-prepared. The workload is intense and we are all now trying to background on our individual student project too. In addition a heavy cold is rampaging through the group. Four have gone down with it and have missed various classes.

I teach an elementary class in an hour and a half´s time. I´m not even sure which building to go to just yet.
