It's Always Nice To Be Thanked

At the end of the last semester one of my very sweet students gave me this:










and this:






While all of my students thank me at the end of each class, it did feel nice to get an extra thanks at the end of the semester.

Is there someone you are thankful for? Saying thank you may just make their day.

Get Back To It

Have I really not blogged for two months? Well, time flies when you are having fun. Let's see, since we talked last I have:

* been to Madrid, Spain for a great family vacation
* taught American English pronunciation for 7 hours a week at Clark College for 6 weeks
* got hit by a car while driving my car
* went to numerous doctor's appointments to find out what is now wrong with my shoulder
* learned that a frozen water bottle feels great when held against my painful rotator cuff (shoulder)

I've also read some books, watched way too much TV and spend time outdoors. The English program I followed for class was amazing. I've signed up to teach it again once Clark's summer classes begin. Depending on who shows up, I will start from the beginning or just continue. Either way, it'll be a great experience.
