You know, it’s hard to know expectations for holidays in a foreign country. Add into that we are just sort of trying to keep our head above water, and that’s how you end up where we did for Halloween.
What they do is have the students write a goal (or two). They come up with ways to meet their goals as well as ways for those around them to help them meet those goals. Then in the conference, it is 3 way because it is a meeting between the parent(s), student, and teacher. The student is mostly in control of the meeting. During the meeting, the parent(s) and teacher help the student to determine another goal or two to work on. The student also tells the parents how things have been going and show their work to the group.

After months of trying to get the company to answer and do what they said they were going to do, we received our stuff. About 30 boxes. I would like to say they arrived in good condition, but then I would be lying.
Monster and I were working on dinner. She pulled the drapes and ran to me telling me I needed to take photos. I have her trained well.
Today is the first time the pollution got to the “very high” level. We actually kept the kids in for break time and activities. Hong Kong Island actually went up to 11. One of the teachers I work with said Hong Kong likes to blame mainland China, but research shows […]
