Please pray for me this week....
This is nothing too serious...but I need some prayers!
As you all know...I am a fourth grade teacher and this is my very first year teaching! I am teaching at a small Christian school here in Texas. I love it here and all of the other teachers have been great to me!
Well...I recieved a new student on Tuesday. She is the FIRST exchange student that our elementary has ever gotten! We have had plenty in our high school and junior high. So, our school is used to this sort of thing. Here is the kicker....my new little girl is Chinese...but was born and raised in Costa Rica! So... she is fluent in Chinese and speaks this to her family. She is also fluent in Spanish because that is what she grew up around. To be quite honest, I wasn't too sure if she spoke ENGLISH!!! But, I finally started getting some one-word answers out of her. She is just extremely shy! I am just struggling with how to get her up to pace with the rest of our class. She has never been to school in America before...so, I know that the English grammar and all of that are really going to get to her! I just know that it will be a struggle for me, specifically since this is my first year and figuring out all of the regular students and their abilities has already been a struggle!
I just need prayers for wisdom and guidance in how to deal with this new student!! :)
I hope you all have a wonderful day!!!
