Caring and Preparing

Back from holidays which were busy busy and far too warm (I recommend spring or fall to visit Israel)... and now thinking about school - and the blog - and who will be writing with us this year?
I'd love some of my students from last year to keep writing - or maybe we'll get some fresh blood... and how's it going with our guy in Melbourne?

As for me, I'm still busy with laundry from my 3 weeks away, and at the same time, trying to get back into preparations for the coming school year... Intro day is already next week! Then a week and a half later - first lessons! Exciting! And daunting at the same time. I saw the movie Larry Crowne - with Julia Roberts as a teacher who is both tough and challenging and a bit despairing - She begins each new class by writing "Care" on the blackboard. "I'm going to teach you how to care..." she says.
