I taught History with 2A and 2C depending on the week. This week I did Ellis Island immigration in 2C with Lucia supervising. Teaching History in English to Italian students was quite a challenge but I am so glad I took the additional hour each week (plus the time to prepare materials) to teach the class. It gave me a greater view of how the Italian school system works and also gave me the opportunity to work with more students.

My first years were my absolute favorites to teach. I worked with them consistently for a majority of the semester and formed a bond with the students. I was most upset to be leaving them. Despite being the equivalent to 6th graders, they constantly impressed me with their ability to speak English.

My final class was a second level. I have taught both English and History with this particular class. I am not as close with this group, but still loved having the opportunity to teach them. I gave them my address so that they can send me letters to practice their English.
