Oh yes.....almost forgot...
...my sprained ankle AFTER a 21 hr plane ride....much better now....could be an old 1/2 Polish/Irish ladies ankle for all you know...yep, that would be ME!! LOL
Hello family, friends and strangers!
First week back to school with students is complete and I am LOVIN' it! I have been transferred to an all girls school, Khadeeja Al Kubra. Teaching Grade 4. A far cry from the all boys school that I requested but I really like my school, my co-workers, the grade level AND the girls are really sweet also....so an unexpected bonus.
An even better bonus is that I am only a 30 minute walk from home...a short bus ride....and/or $2.00 cab ride (when my arms are too full to walk...u know teachers...lol).
I have included some pics from my classroom (which I LOVE...don't neglect to notice the cool IKEA lamp in the reading corner...all the Arabic teachers keep coming in to my class to check it out) and my students. Also take notice of my 'new' attire for this year....an Abaya...lol. I have two actually, and will be alternating weeks to wear them. They are not so bad, since I can shower in the morning and put my pj's back on underneath...lol.
Enjoy...and stay tuned!! xo
P.S. I threw in a picture of my swollen ankle that I sprained during a

run the morning I left TO, AFTER 21hrs on two different flights
