I normally jot down my notes either the night of class or the next day before work gets started, so this is a bit behind since we have class tonight and I’m writing about something that has happened almost five days ago.
The class was invigorated with some more new students so we actually started fairly early and has a small rest break making our class closer to the 2 hours that I say we do, but normally don’t.
Teacher is still on the formula, so I was able to apply a few things after our talk to the class. When I was leading the warm-ups I simply didn’t ask permission and told people what to do. I led people in counting and did some corrections and hints through out the class.
The hardest thing to do for me is to consciously get my mind in the correct place. I’m doing a lot of self checking and stopping myself from placing the way I speak and think in the pejorative. I find this exhausting and distracting. However, it keeps my mouth shut more often. Probably a nice break for my friends.
