Hello, everyone. I will write about my life and work of this month.
☆ｆrom May 1 to 8☆
I visited to my students' house to talk with their parents.(家庭訪問）
I don't have my car, so I went to their house by my bycycle. I visited 6 or 7 houses a day. It was hard for me, but I found many interesting facts from the parents' talking.
Many parents said "please give homework to my child!" I was surprised because I gave homework to them almost everyday.... (^^;) They don't know that fact. Wow!
Many parents say "the most important thing is to be fine." But most of them worry about their children's study, too.
I had a 初任者研修. All of them who became teachers from this year met together. We were divided into some groups and did some activities together.
First, our group learned about sign language. A woman who uses sign language came to teach us, and we learned from her.
I can talk by using sign languages about name, hobby, and so on, now! We pretty enjoyed the activities.
Second, we experienced blind person's life.視力減退体験.(I am sorry I don't know the word in English.) We made pairs and a person put an eye mask on the eyes, and walked together. I knew that it is especially hard for people who can not see anything to ride an escalator.
I like 初任者研修, because I can make friends, and to talk with them make me relaxed.
Mr.K came to our school. He is a teacher of another elementary school and came to our school almost once a week to see my classes and give me advices. He is called 拠点校指導教員. He was in my class almost all the day and write something as seeing my classes. I was a little nervous, but I think I have to get used to the situation, because he will come every week untill next March.
The parents visited our school, because the day was a 懇談会. 懇談会 means a meeting by a teacher and parents. I talked with them about "athletic meet" that will have on June 2nd.
Teachers' work is too busy and I was tired every day, so I go family home every weekend to be relaxed. I really want to recommend that to become a teacher near your family home if it is possible!!! It may be huge help for you★
