Welcome Back from Vacation!
Even after teaching for forty years, it’s always exciting for me to start a new semester. This semester is special, because I will be retiring in May. As some of you know, this class is really like two classes in one. Monday and Tuesday we are in the computer room, and we will be doing reading, listening, vocabulary and grammar exercises on the computer, as well as using this blog. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we will be in Room 329 for a more traditional classroom experience.
I spent my vacation at home, relaxing, working, and cleaning up and getting rid of things in my house. It is amazing how much stuff you can collect over the years! I prepared some of the material we will be using this semester. I was glad I was able to visit my parents a few times too. They live in Walnut Creek, so it’s not too far away.
How did you spend your vacation? Did you go anywhere or did you just stay home like I did? Did you sleep late? Did you do anything special? Do you like vacations or would you prefer to keep going to school?
