Julito, I sympathize with you but “Come on!” If you snooze, you lose ;) Don’t you know the hazard of rest? I’d get a genuine kick out of mobilizing you :) Yeah, I refuse to be a boring teacher.

I love to wear trendy jewelry. Even if I had enough money to buy it I wouldn’t wear expensive jewelry like gold or diamond, I don’t like it but  I wear trendy and inexpensive accessories almost every time. I think that jewelry makes look feminine and beautiful.

julito1: We’d bring a lot of culture into the classroom, don’t you think? We’d hit the dancefloor (between the white board and student desks) to dance a dramatic tango. Drama is such a powerful tool to learn a language  a n d  it adds a little spark and flair to the mix. At any rate, there’s no silver bullet.. but mind, you would be doing everything but sitting :))

Why Jessica should be jealous for not wearing glitzy diamonds and the likes ? These “rocks” only prove that you are a well-to-do person . But Jessica, if you  like to express yourself then let your personality shine through, starting with : hey ” i belong to the staff members of English Baby. Wow, really ?? 


buttafly: with rhines or without them , i would very much to be seated at your class, among the kids listening to you delivering a lesson on the english language :)))

I ‘m not much into jewelry. Just the basics which I wear every single day – and night. Subtle silver earrings and a necklace to cover up a scar. That’s it. I am not the type of person who needs sparkly diamonds to make a statement. I am a teacher, therefore I am also quite comfortable with wearing budget glitz – better known as rhinestones :)
