Howdy all! Nothing much to say but thought I'd post anyway. I'm a poet! Yeah rhyming! :)
I thought I'd post a few pictures of some of the things I'd recently completed and share a little news.
My 'day' job (and from semester to semster, my night job!) is teaching English as a Second Language to adult language learners at a local college in town. We really try and expose the students to as much of our city, state and country as possible. Some are only here for a few months while others may have already been here for years but still struggle with the language. In semesters past, we've gone on field trips (Branson, aquarium, haunted corn maze, Gilcrease...) but this semester it seems that we have a younger crew of students who aren't as hip to the field trippin' scene.
Sooooooo...why do I tell you all of this??? Well, in lieu of field trips, they are attempting to plan different activities for the students to participate in and are offering activities that are gender specific. This is especially important for students who come from cultures where gender separation is not rare and students find comfort in doing things with their own genders. I could really go on and on about all of this but I will refrain for your sanity :)
So again, why do I tell you this??? Well, they have decided to have a paintball event for the menfolk to participate in and have asked if we would be interested in leading a jewelry workshop for the ladies! I jumped at the opportunity and am SO excited to do this! It's really all of my passions mixed into one - teaching, ESL and jewelry! We will find out soon if it is a go or not and I'm crossing everything possible that it is!
I end this babbling post with two pictures of a couple of pieces I recently completed. Enjoy!
