So the school year hasn’t started yet, and I’m teaching last year’s first graders twice this week. Last year, they were called second graders and had moved into the second grade building and were sorted into homerooms by this time. This year, apparently they’re still considered first graders, so I’m apparently teaching them in the first grade building. Found this out five minutes before class when I looked at my schedule and realized it read “1학년” instead of “2학년.” Then I found out that not only are they NOT in their first grade homeroom arrangements, but they’re not in their second grade homeroom arrangements. For the entire months of January and February the classes are random. Ugh. As long as they don’t mix them up halfway through the week I’ll be okay.
It’s good to be back in the classroom, though I’d like for this awkward transitional time period to be over, thank you very much.
