The time has come where I finally have to start teaching myself the Bollywood dance that the kids are going to be doing for an assembly at the end of the year. You might wonder why I have to start it now, and I have an answer: there’s still a regular sports assembly plus the big dance concert coming up before both of those. So, we’re busy.
Busy, always busy. I really do wish I could be busy with things that are more for me. But then again, I imagine that’s how most of us feel.
This is the Jai Ho instructional video that our administrator wants me to use to teach the dance. It’s actually a lot less complicated than I thought. I honestly like this Jai Ho version better, but I think it would be too difficult to teach in the time that I have.
Don’t you just love the costumes though?
So much fun!
There’s a possibility that I’ll be dancing with them, but I haven’t decided yet. I love performing and have always wanted to learn Bollywood, but I’m also a teacher. The administrator in charge of the assembly said I could do it, but I’m still on the fence. Luckily I still have time to decide!
And now for a question.
What do you do when you don’t feel appreciated at work? I ask this in reference to students, not staff. So, fellow teachers, advice?
