After a few days of being here, I still didn’t know what I was going to be doing such as working in the clinic, teaching, helping with the babies, etc. The principal and Robyn got us together and discussed what they would like us to do. I was hoping that I could just help out in the clinic and then teach piano, but they wanted me to teach science and health to the 4th graders (they call it class 4), IT/computers to class 7, and piano. I was about ready to throw up, but I said 'Yes' anyway. Right after we talked I went to the 4th grade teacher and tried to get better understanding of what I would be doing because that next day would be my first day on the job. I had no clue what I was doing! It has definitely been a rollercoaster for these past few months. The school system here isn’t the best and it’s hard when I’m trying to teach but the teacher has to translate it anyway. I know for sure that I will NOT be a teacher as my ultimate career goal. Some days it is fun and other days is total chaos.
This is one of the simpler things we take care of in the clinic.
