I haven’t updated this blog in a little while. We had a holiday break, my in-laws came to visit, we have been doing our normal routine and I just hadn’t gotten around to it. However I must write about the fact that I am now employed! Don’t get me wrong, those 6 months of no-work responsibility was unemployment bliss and I enjoyed my time exploring, but I was ready to get busy again. I am now helping out as a TA (teacher’s assistant) with a Year 2 class (1st grade). I have no experience teaching nor have I really every tried to pursue this as a career but I welcome the experience and opportunity. I’m essentially helping the teacher with coordinating the class, one-on-one reading with students, printing, laminating, filing, etc. This job was a definite transition at first as I sometimes find groups of children more intimidating than groups of adults! Ha. Either way these kids have accepted me and I am learning a whole new set of skills. I definitely miss the hotel and hospitality industry but appreciate this change while I am living in Thailand. Who knows, maybe this could be another career path one day. We’ll see how it goes.
