Well I have officially been a teacher in Mississippi for 1 month. It has been a roller-coaster ride for me. I have experienced culture shock in the classroom after teaching my students in China for two years. With that being said I am changing the name of my blog to “From Chopsticks to Mason Jars!” It is going to be a slow transition as I rename my store and re-do my themes/buttons. That on top of teaching!!
One of the biggest things I have noticed over the past few weeks is the lack of trust that my students have. Their entire school career has been littered with a revolving door of teachers. They do not trust adults because adults = inconsistency. It is my battle to prove that I am not going to leave and that I actually care for each and every one of them. So wish me luck with all the changes happening in my life!!
