If you could be something other than a teacher, what would it be?

Middle School Students can be a handful!

Students receive one hour of English per week.  Everyone would like it to be longer, and the administration of the school is trying to find more time.  The English classes have about 15 students in each.  The classrooms are bright, given the abundance of windows.

With a class of 15 students, it's possible to have interactive activities.  Like all middle school students, these Peruvian students were no exception ... they brought lots of energy to the room!  Assessing their language ability, I found they could follow most everything I said, and could follow directions very well.

Conversationial English is a lot of fun....... However..... how to make the conguation of verbs exciting?  I'm working on that one!
