I am using all new curriculum this year and we are all loving it. It is definitely a challenge teaching three boys that are brothers in all different grades. On a daily basis I am teaching at least 18 different lessons in a four hour period. Some days by the end of class my brain is totally fried and I’m exhausted. And I thought teaching 6-8 lessons a day in a classroom in the states was exhausting….
It’s so fun teaching the boys this year because I know them and they know me and I know what works for them and what doesn’t.
I love these boys.
Last week, Joshua, the oldest showed up to school with a fever and wasn’t feeling good. About halfway through the day it was clear he needed medicine so we got him medicine and he went up to my house and fell asleep on the couch. The other two boys did their work quietly and let their brother rest. It’s times like this where I love the freedom and ability to truly love these boys however they need it.
But really. Just look at this group. I love them all so much. I am so proud of them and the progress they have made over the past year.
There’s a little glimpse into my daily life here in Haiti 🙂
