I am excited that I have a friend from home coming this week for 8 days. I am slowly packing away my luggage and cleaning my place in preparation for her arrival. I have booked us a visit to the Burj Khalifah (the tallest building in the world) as well as a desert safari.
We started school yesterday and we are here for the week with no students. Everyone was happy to see everyone and all the teachers were really nice and welcoming, maybe this year will be a better year than last in terms of my relationships with my coworkers, I guess that only time will tell. I will be moving up to Grade 7 with my students from last year. I am happy about this because I will be teaching students that I already know. The down side to this is that it is a completely new Science curriculum for Grade 7, so I will be creating all the work from scratch. We re supposed to get a textbook but that may only come in December. We got a new Math teacher and she is really nice, we are just waiting for the new English and Science teachers.
Hope all the new and returning teachers have a wonderful year!
