It was my first week teaching at a new school and my kids are CRAZY! They have so much energy, so much excitement, and their eagerness to learn is adorable. I taught in the classroom Monday-Wednesday and was told I needed to chaperone/teach at the overnight English camp for the P1 (1st grade) English Program students Thursday-Friday.
We took a 3 hour bus ride to a resort and played a lot of games, danced even more, went swimming, ate amazing food, and slept in cabins with the kids. They were so excited to go on a sleepover adventure with their friends and without their parents. I stayed up later than I have in months just listening to the girls in my cabin giggle and jump from bed to bed. I couldn’t even be mad! They loved EVERY second of their little adventure and it was contagious.
On our way back to the school, we stopped at a huge dam and took a few pictures which didn’t last long because 6 year olds don’t seem to understand what is behind a dam. They were more interested in the dance party they were having on the bus.
I am truly grateful for this experience because my job is not “work.”
