IASP is really an interesting place. We are kinda flying by the seat of our pants here, which I'm sure is pretty normal at these international schools (or maybe it's just mine, I dunno). For example, we may or may not have a K-1st grade. Another example: the school rents the building from a Catholic organization and the contract is up in January and there is a slight, slight possibility of moving the whole school for the second semester. So, there's all these little (and big) things that are up in the air, but it's ok. That's just the way things work here in St. Pete and I'm pretty confident everything will work out fine.
Today, Tuesday, we unpacked the school. Because the school rents from this Catholic organization, it got packed up for the summer and they used the building as a hostel of sorts. Of course, my classroom was used as one of the two main storerooms. Hopefully, tomorrow I will be able to post some before and after pictures with my room perfectly set up and looking good.
