It’s been 2 months since I arrived in Choir. Since that time I’ve started working with the Agaa Egee (Big Brothers/Big Sisters) project, observed classes, co-planned and co-taught, taught completely on my own, tested the English level of all the teachers at my school, taught English classes for the teachers, attended Community English classes, celebrated Teachers’ Day and 2 weddings, started 3 clubs with my counterparts, washed my clothes by hand 4 times, had two hitchhiking couples as guests, received 4 cards and 1 package, and experienced snow and below-freezing temperatures.
Overall it’s been going alright. There have been ups and downs, but I’m still here! I’m heading to Ulaanbaatar this week for a flu shot, looking forward to being in a real city again!
