Last night was my last class of the semester!
I think my favorite moment was when three of my students left arm in arm in arm – an elderly Burmese woman, a young Burmese woman, and a young El Salvadoran woman. It was evidence of some good ESL classes because the three of them could not communicate without English, and because they probably would not communicate without a nice feeling of community in class.
Next up: exploring grad school options for a Masters of Arts in teaching ESOL… and applying.
Next semester of teaching starts January 19th! You’ll hear from me between now and then, but not on my regular most-week-days posting schedule. Happy winter, and happy holidays!
