I am teaching in the YEAR 1 classroom (5 and 6yrs). I am living with a family and their house is 4 houses down from the school. I am a 5 minute walk from the little city of Mairangi Bay where there are shops and a beach, and a 20 min bus ride from Auckland. My host mom is named Sue and her husband is named Gray. They have two daughters who are 20 and 22 which should be really fun.
I can't believe that I'm leaving in 4 days. I fly out Friday at 6:45pm and land in Auckland on Sunday at 8:30. It was just yesterday that Abby and I were talkingin our dorm room about doing this program. Now in 4 days she'll be in England and I'll be in New Zealand!
