Journal for 2004-1-21 and 24 Fri. and Mon.
Weather: Cloudy then Sunny Plan: Oda Ele. / Akagi JHS / Tani Ele.

Today was fun, I went to Oda Elementary School. It is really easy for me to teach at Oda Ele. All the teachers always have such good plans there. It is a small school, so everyone feels close. We sung a lot of songs today. The most popular one was "London Bridge." We also played the "London Bridge" game. In April, Oda Ele. is shutting it's doors for good because of the town merger. It really is sad.
I felt busy all day today, but actually, I wasn't busy at all. My head was filled with all kinds of thoughts. I think I know the reason... I found out I didn't get the ALT PA position I was vying for. Someone else was chosen. So, today I sent in Form A-2 to the Iinan Board of Education indicating that I want to work in Iinan for another year. I like this town, but I did want that job. Oh well, what can you do? That means, If the Iinan Board of Education wants me for another year, I will be here in Iinan until Aug. 2006. Please don't abandon me, Iinan!
