We all have our strengths and weaknesses and today I've been thinking of my own. Today is the last day of work days before the kids come in. Classes don't start until Monday, but we have our "clase guia" (homeroom) for the next three days from 7:30-12:00 pm and we're supposed to be doing group bonding stuff with them.
So this made me think of my weaknesses-
I can't pay attention
But I have one strength that is always on my side- I am really freaking creative! Like really super creative. All the other teachers are bitching and whining about what the hell are they going to do for these three days, while I have not only come up with plenty of stuff for my kids, but have also given out extra ideas to the other teachers. I'm sure I'll need to come up with some more stuff because activities never take as long as you think they will, but I'm confident in my ability to come up with awesome games/activities/random shit on the spot.
In about three weeks we'll have our annual Noche Bohemia again. Last time we totally killed the competition winning first place! Hellllz yeah. I plan to keep up the streak. Because I'm really good at coming up with cool shit for the kids to do.
I may not be the smartest, most organized, most prepared, most "rule obeying" teacher in the world, but I am really creative. And I think that's pretty awesome.
