Day Number One on the Job

In Mozambique on February 25, 2008 at 11:54 pm

It is so hot in the teacher’s office where I am resigned to spend my entire day.

I spent my morning preparing a 30 minute presentation about myself and my educational background that I am to present to the staff and other teachers on Friday evening.

I am somewhat disappointed. They really don’t have anything for me to do here right now. I’m just at a desk studying my Portuguese/English dictionary and flash cards. The school runs very well and all of the students are in class with their teachers. Tracy and I have absolutely nothing to do and we’re not allowed to go anywhere. I was supposed to have a meeting a few hours ago, but the person never appeared, or maybe according to Mozambican time, just hasn’t shown up yet.

Two more hours and my shift is up. Hopefully tomorrow will be (I’d say more productive, but let’s just call it what it is) productive.
