Unlike most public school teachers, I have my own classroom. It is an English lab of sorts, with a bank of computers in the back and a small collection of English books and dvds and an encyclopedia set. I’m still trying to figure out how to make full use of all of the resources that I have available to me. This is definitely nicer and more high-tech than any public school classroom than I have ever seen in the US.
I absolutely do not understand the thinking that went behind the images and text on the blinds in this classroom. One says “Organic Fruit” while another says McDonald’s Drive-Thru”. On the other side of the room we have “Irish farmer with his donkey and dog”.
Most of my students are really camera-shy. The best I can usually manage are candid shots.
