“Teacher your so injustice!”

“Teacher your so injustice” just so happens to be one of my kid’s favorite sayings here in Mexico. It cracks me up. Whenever my dear children at discovery think something is unfair they yell this at me. Teaching has been quite a bit of an adventure. I knew from the start that I have never been a huge kid person. Anyone that knows me well knows that kids are not my forte. You may ask why on earth I decided to go to Mexico in the first place. To be honest, it was not teaching kids that attracted me, but the experiences I would be able to have here. Surprisingly though, I have gained a love for my kids that I was not expecting. Not only are they some of the most adorable human beings on the planet, but they are eager to learn. It’s amazing what these kids have learned from ILP teachers. Although I know many of them don’t appreciate the skills and knowledge they have gained now, I am sure it will greatly improve their future. I wish I would have learned Spanish as child. Now as an adult, I am attempting to learn Spanish and it has been a roller coaster of emotions. It’s so hard to learn a second language, and I commend these kids for doing so well. As for now, I am just that injustice teacher making it one day at a time.
