Weather: Sunny   Plan: Mirasaka Elementary

I have finished my first week at my new job! It is easy to memorize all the kids’ names at my junior high schools since they are so small. I already have most of the 41 kids’ names and faces at Sakugi Junior High School down pat. I don’t know all the 68 kids at Kimita Junior High School yet, but I should have it by the week after next. I believe that schools these sizes are just right. It is much easier to get to know the kids one-on-one with these class sizes. Cool, huh?

I started teaching at the very interesting Mirasaka Elementary School today. It is larger than the other elementary schools I have taught at, at 155 kids. The kids are crazy energetic, though. The most interesting thing about the school is that there are about three or four first to third graders that are decked out in “kogal” style. Their hair is dyed and permed, their ears are pierced, and they have kogal style sweaters and short skirts. I think that these kids mom is really trendy. I asked the kids and they told me that their mom is one year younger than me. I didn’t even think trendy mamas like that existed!

天気: 晴 行事: 三良坂小

最初の週間を終わりました!両方の中学校は人数少ないので、生徒の名前を覚えやすいです。ほとんどの作木中学校の41人生徒の名前と顔を覚えました。君田中学生の68人はまだ覚えなかったが、再来週までできると思います。この大きさの学校がちょっといいと信じています。人数が少ないクラスは一人一人で生徒を知っているのが最も簡単です。最高ですねえ!

今日、とても面白い三良坂小学校に教え始まりました。前に教えた小学校より人数が多い155人児童がいる学校です。子供たちがすごく元気です。一番面白いことは3,4人低学年生はコギャルファッションをしました。髪を染めたり、パーマをかけたり、耳をピアスしたり、コギャルのようなセーターや短いスカートも着けていたり、します。その子供のお母さんはもしかしてすごくトレンディと思いまし。お母さんは僕より1年若いと子供は教えられました。そういうトレンディMamaがいるのが知らなかったのです!

  • There's a word for those trendy mommies, I can't remember it at the moment...but yeah, it's basically what they call those slaggy ladies who get pregnant young but can't let go of their fashionable ways and end up dressing their kids like it too... I don't know if its a good thing or a bad thing. On one hand, it's nice to see that a Japanese woman who doesn't let her life and looks end just because she has kids now. On the other hand, dressing little girls like slags isn't cool either ;P
  • 41 kids in a junior high? My school has 545 students in it! I haven't memorized all the names yet, either, although they help me out by wearing name tags. But the name tags only have their family names on it.
    • Small classes rule. You should move out to the inaka... although I lament the fact that my closest maid cafe is two hours away. :P
