I only have a few days left with my family before I go back to Honduras on Wednesday! I have been really blessed with all the donated books and supplies and now have a good problem- fitting it all in my suitcase! The 50 pound per bag seems generous until you are a teacher trying to pack a bunch of children's books!
I found out that I have been promoted along with my students- I will be teaching 6th grade this year. I have a feeling that I will not be getting most of my students from last year. One of the 5th grade classes went through 4 teachers, and so I am thinking they will be the class I get. A bunch of changes have been made while I've been gone. We were renting 3 different properties, (1 for the church, 2 for the school) and we have now stopped renting one of them. They got rid of the property where the preschool and chapel are, so it is going to look a lot different. They also made the classrooms bigger so that they have less teachers per grade and more students per class. Instead of 3 sections per grade, there are now only 2. We'll see what it's like when I get there in 3 days!
