So it’s been a couple months and I was starting to get a little antsy. Cameron is in school 2 full days a week and I needed to be more productive with my time. I can’t expect to go to the beach, lunch with friends and play squash all day, right?
I used to teach Kindermusik in the states. In fact I started taking classes when Alexander was 5 weeks old because I was itching to get out of the house (go figure?) and by the time Bella was born and I was taking classes with her, I decided that I wanted to train to become an educator. I went through the process and started teaching in 2003. I did classes out of home for a few years and then started teaching at Gardenview Montessori where Bella eventually went to school.
I taught up until December 2010.
So – it seemed a natural thing to look into when I was here. I looked into a few things and discovered that there was a women who was teaching Kindermusik around Abu Dhabi and had a few educators under her. www.paradise-music.com
I contacted her to see if she needed anymore teachers. We had a couple meetings and away I went!
I started teaching at a nursery school on November 14th doing 2 ABC Music & Me classes. I am also starting a Family Time class at a nearby facility on Friday the 25th for an hour. There is a possibility of teaching at another preschool in January. I could do more but I think I’m going to just stick with the few classes for now!
Hers’ an old picture I dug out from one of my first classes back in my Ferndale home. There’s Bella in my lap!
Here’s Alexander in Kindermusik classes when he was younger!
