In the past two months I've had two first days of school. The first was mid-August starting my second year at Mulberry House International Pre-School. Yes, I'm the Rabbit Teacher again, but with a very different class. I have 13 students that keep me busy the entire day. Unlike last year, there are a few who are still learning English. My assistant can help translate the Thai, but Arabic is one that we both don't understand. I have just 2 weeks left of the first half term. I'm looking forward to the week +1 day off, plus my mom comes to visit! Here's some pictures of my new Rabbit Class!

My second first day of school was a few weekends ago. I officially began my master's program through the State University of New York Buffalo here in Bangkok. Go Bulls! (I had to look that up)The program, Multidisciplinary Studies, is a masters for international teachers covering a wide variety of subjects. My coursework should be done by next June with just my final project to complete.

My class, The Holistic Curriculum: Teaching to Both Sides of the Brain, met at big international school about 20 minutes away from home. My fellow classmates come from all over the world. Ireland, Canada, Thailand/India, and the US. Our professor was Russian. Yes, I'm using the past tense because this class is already over. In the first week +1 day we met 6 times for approximately 38 hours. We had the next week for our two written assignments. I just submitted my final assignment. Next class starts next week. Between my two schools, it's going to be a busy year.
