Cancellations are going to happen and there will be times that we arrive and students are not going to be there as expected.
Please try to be patient. What we are doing is of great value: but we have to be ready for whatever this new world of MX throws at us.
2. I know there is some nervousness around our various levels of ability with Spanish. I understand and frequently experience ''fear'' when it comes to communicating in our spanish world here.
Please know that my deeper objective for organizing readers and even for developing all the libraries that I have put together, really has far less to do with the educational value and much more to do with 'developing a sense of 'Community.''
If we can find our own way to relax and focus on enjoying meeting these new people, little though they are, and move away from concerns about our own abilities and the educational objectives. I believe that it will be a lot easier to have a bit of fun, as we get to know some of our neighbors.
If we can find our own way to do this, then in my heart & mind this program will be a wonderful success .
If the doubt persists, just wait for that first time one of your students runs up to you on the street and calls your name, smiles and maybe even gives you a hug: nothing can be sweeter.
