Lazy Sunday

Sleeping in never felt so good. I am resting up for what will undoubtedly be an exhausting week. Mrs. Lee has decided to expand the school and take on a Korean four year old class. (That's two and three years old by American counting.) At some point you have to draw the line. That is just too young to be seriously trying to learn anything other than walking, talking, and using toilets rather than your underpants let alone a foreign language.

Each of us will spend one class period a day with the new class to try and break them in. I look at it as taking away a prep period to baby sit. If nothing else the kids will be cute. When they're that age, it's hard not to be.

The school has been steadily growing the past several months. We've been getting more and more new students in the older grade levels and they are talking about creating a new kindergarten class (in addition to the new four year old class). Apparently our academy has a really good reputation right now. Other schools down the street from us has been suffering with staff turn over, bad teaching, and poor management and so many of the parents are pulling their kids out and transferring them to KC.

Hopefully they'll get a new teacher to help handle the influx of students. Doubtful, but here's wishing. At least I only get to be a part of it for another two weeks.

What's your place of business' reputation like?

I probably don't need to comment too directly on your question, but I will say that we had a good weekend at MSU Ag Days participating in every event except Parli-Pro. We were in the top half of all contests even placing 6th in sales, 8th in mechanics, and 9th in livestock. I don't know if this is a reflection on my place of work though.

Much more a reflection of the employee. Congrats!
