…your birthday in class?
Today is my 29th birthday. As millions of teachers are already enjoying Easter break, we have four days to go. Not that I mind, I love what I do.
However, all weekend I was wondering what to do on my birthday in class. Anything special? In Germany it is quite custom to bring a treat for your colleagues and possibly your students too. We did anyway at my old school in Berlin. But in Italy, by law, we cannot bring anything home-baked, etc in without a list of ingredients. Then there is a vegetarian (no eggs) student, a lactose-intolerant students and me, who doesn’t add sugar to anything at the moment. Out of 11 people!
So, I am going to ignore my birthday, like every year, and hope that we get through the day without too much. I shall enjoy a lot of quality portfolio work this morning though.
