    I'll only make 50% of a full salary. Half of that will probably go to pay back on my student loan, insurances & taxes. What may be left over has to be saved!

    No fun with money yet.

    Some students can be challenging, but these kids are also quite funny. All their creative ways of trying to be excused earlier or not do an assignment. I can't laugh in front of them, but later on I can have a chuckle.
    Some on the other hand can really challenge your cool, calm & relaxed mood!!! It's a good thing that this stage is NOT compulsary. Teachers can send them out of the room if they misbehave. And if they misbehave a lot, they risk losing their student income.....

    It went great. I am now working a little more than 50% as I got one more class.

    What's difficult is the planning. In 2 classes, I still don't know what they have done and what the former teacher had planned for the rest of the course. I will just have to change things.

    I have the "less good" students. Mostly guys who are more interested in which time they can go than in working. They're funny & creative though... About the wrong things. But it's not my job to be a prison guard and whip them into working. I am a resource if they want to pass the course.

    I will try to find some fun things to do, mixed with grammar & new words.

    Today was great. Literature only, and fun conversations with collaegues. Turns out I share a past with one of them! I thought she looked so familiar. So I asked her today. We used to spend time together as kids! We've been to each others' homes!
