In just a week, I’ll have a tiny kindergarten class all to myself. There will be four students whose parents want extra prep for their kids (or need the little boogers in daycare sooner than August), and since I have a Chinese-speaking homeroom teacher, we’ll have a teacher-student ratio of 1:2. That is pretty awesome, I must say.
I am quite excited, and I hope I get to name them. I had some input on renaming one of my younger students who was going by Feifei (pronounced Fifi), but that was initiated by the Chinese teacher, not me. She’s now Sophia, by the way, which is far more dignified, suitable, and appealing. Go team me, CT, and Sophia’s mom!
