Well, I am living abroad...yet again. After Singapore, Spain, Turkey, Korea the Netherlands (and returning to Spain for a Masters) I've unpacked my backpack a little closer to home in Mexico. I live in Culiacan where I am trying my hand at teaching English to University and high school students. Below you'll find random updates as I go to festivals, explore my city or just feel like sharing a random story.

30 speeches, lots of facts

OK random facts about my school taken from 30 of my students speeches on my school.

First all the numbers:

My school just opened, October 4, 2005!!!

My school's library opened November 14th, 2006.

Our English hall just opened! December 13th, 2007!!

My school has 4 stories (I think we have 5 actually), 20 classrooms, 657 students(someone else said 653) and 49 teachers(someone else said 44).

There are 7490 books in my library.

Mottos ...:

The motto is, "Righteousnessand Wisdom" (ok some other student wrote Be Honest and Wise, and another stduent truth and wisdom)

Our school flower is a rose, and our tree is a pine tree.

The school is called a green school, so we can be friends with nature and learn to play safely with fresh air to breathe.

Did you know my school's website won an award? Something about EQ and management...I don't know.

The library is called the dream hall!

DIRECT QUOTE FROM A STUDENT'S SPEECH, "We have lots of handsome male teachers"

We have a school band called "Chungcularam" (I have been wondering what the heck that band was called! They're pretty good, CONSTANTLY playing, "you give love a bad name")
