This afternoon (after my daycare class) was the first meeting of the teacher's English Club this school year. In addition to one of my co-teachers (who runs the club), five others were in attendance. I'm not required to go (It's not an extra class I get paid for), but I love to help and encourage others, and this English club gives me the perfect set-up to do just that. It's also a great chance for me to get to know some of the other teachers that I never get to interact with on a regular day.
I'm so thankful that I have this opportunity at my school. I really hope we continue to meet regularly on Thursdays, and that attendance remains the same or increases. I really admire and am grateful that these teachers are putting themselves out there into the uncomfortable situation of speaking English in the club - especially in front of a native speaker. I'll continue to try to be as encouraging and supportive as I can.
