In the picture above, King Kong (kids in China have crazy English names) just fell out of his chair during class (for some reason this happens all the time with my students). 7th graders are a handful; they can be extremely rowdy. Previously I have always taught 10th graders, which I really enjoyed, but my school recently switched me over to 7th graders, and its a whole new ballpark. They have half the English skills and patience but twice the energy and noise. It is tough, but I am trying to adapt and learning to love them.
