While sitting at my desk working today, the secondary classes were changing books in between classes. Some of the older boys must have thought I wouldn't care or wouldn't hear, but they dropped a few cuss words. At least they were secondary. I've heard much worse from elementary kids. I simply called out, "Language please boys". They looked, not at all shocked, but seeming to be respectful enough to move on. I contemplated saying, "If you want me to not say anything, cuss in your own language! I understand you in mine."
My kids finally arrived today, jet-lagged. They just got in this morning, so I will not be doing assessments this week. At least they are in though. I was getting pretty tired of not teaching.
