The first day of school was quite overwhelming with all of the new names and immersion into a classroom full of 4 year old kiddos who do not speak English well. By Friday, the kids warmed up to me and have been trying very hard to speak to me in English! I have also picked up quite a bit of Spanish myself :). The school here is very different from Kentucky. The biggest difference for me is the lunch/coffee break! Altogether I have 3 hours during each school day to eat lunch and have coffee. During these times I usually go to a nearby cafe or shop. My cooperating teaching, Mayi, has been very welcoming and helpful!
