Today was the end of my contract. 18months with my kids, it’s been a tough week of goodbyes.

On Friday Ivana and Ivania brought me some presents they had made at home for me. Made me want to cry! Then yesterday they brought me a present that their mom had bought for me as well as some cards. Ivan had written me a sweet card as well and they all made a huge production out of giving me their presents. I had to still teach with the new kid in class and the trainee teacher so I sent them both out a little early to get a proper goodbye.

When we walked out their moms were waiting to take photos and say goodbye. Had me all teary eyed! The twins mom hugged me forever and then started crying. So sad!

To top it off Stella popped in with the sweetest goodbye present,Cherrie went out of the way to buy me something she new I would enjoy and Kelvin gave me an awesome speciality t-shirt. The presents were great but it was the thought and care that went into them that had me super sad. My manager and work colleagues have been amazing over the last few months and saying goodbye was super hard 🙁


It’s been a few weeks now with the new chat room kid.I’m sure at home he is a great kid. We Just can’t Get past the crying. It’s not I’m sad crying, I want mom crying or I’m scared crying.

It is literally I am a brat and I don’t want to be here so let me cry and cry as loud as I can and run to the door acting as if the room was on fire.

The first student we have ever had like this, the only one that none of us like and the first time I have just given up and sent a kid out for an entire lesson.After 3 weeks of crying in everyone’s classes we haven’t had a chance to get work done and our only solution is to take our admin Charlotte and have her sit in class.

Thankfully that solution worked for as long as he was here, more importantly he now returns to class and hardly ever cries! Only took him 4months.
