    Hang in there, James, it will get better. Now you know why I am a bit daft after 35 years in the classroom.

    Love, Uncle Bill

    Hi James! I just read all of your posts and I like your writing style! Nice easy reading and I love your goals and commitment to the job and this blog. Can you tell us more about how your students get to be in your classroom and how come they are learning English if they don’t really want to be? Who is paying for their education??? Thanks!

    Thinking of you often!

      These are mainly public schools so it’s part of their curriculum. They have to be there (well they’re supposed to be, often students just don’t show up) but they don’t always want to be. Often times the students won’t understand the value of learning English.

    Keep the faith James. It sounds like every bit of the challenge you expected it to be. Just trust in the process and trust in yourself. I am so proud of you and admire your courage.
    With love,
