Happy Independence Day from Valdivia, Chile! This morning, Alejandra, one of my 8th graders gave me this card. Adorable.
Being abroad for your country’s main holiday is always interesting. I notice I always have more pride, but at the same time I keep my mood toned down a bit. (I mentioned that it was 4th of July to one of my other classes, and a few kids just went “bluggghh…”)
