December 13, 2004 – (Not so) wonderful kids

The injured teacher who was rushed to the hospital a few days ago was back to work today. He was okay to teach in the classroom, but I was asked to teach his kids class to help protect his injured back.

The kids class was full of 8 wonderful children who were very attentive and eager to learn English. They were a pleasure to teach and I think the lesson went very well.

Author’s note: The only thing true about the last two sentences was the number of children.

December 11, 2004 – Medical emergency

Today was an exciting day at work for all the wrong reasons. One of the teachers injured his back the day before while riding a bicycle. After about 3 lessons, he started having trouble breathing and was rushed to the hospital. The other teachers were worried and upset, and the staff did their best to rearrange the schedule on short notice.

Removing a teacher from the schedule in the middle of a shift is not an easy thing to do, and ends up negatively affecting students, teachers, and the staff who have to make it all work out.

I could do without this kind of excitement on the job.
