my first evening teaching english yesterday went well! i really like my students. they are a really an interesting and diverse group (brazil, haiti, lithuania, colombia, japan, france, mexico, mexico, mexico, mexico,mexico....) they all seem enthusiastic about participating and want to learn so they can get better jobs, improve they're immigration chances, etc. Many of them are on student visas, one is a grad students, another is a lawyer, one's a dispatcher. i feel challenged, but in a motivating sort of way, to live up to them and their desire to get the most out of this clast.
also, it is a bit strange being the person in charge while being, by far, the youngest. so i hope my abilities can outweigh that.

i've just spent the last hour preparing exercises on the future tenses for tomorrow's class.
