|Cold water shower at school|
|The School bus|
|First, out the door of my room|
|Through the front door & gate|
|My spot where I stand outside gate|
|New House being built|
|Back of building where I get my hair cut|
Once I am through the second gate I wait until my ride comes to get me. Across the street they are building a new house. To the right is a strip mall (they call them shop lots) where I walk to get my hair done. While it is hard for me to just rent a room with all its limitations and rules, it is convenient since I don't have a car and they don't have public transportation other than cabs which are almost impossible to get a hold of. I am also in walking distance of a restaurant, grocery store, ATM machine, and place to get massages.
|Waiting to get out in traffic. In walking distance is grocery store & restaurant I eat at sometimes.|
|Can either be crazy, busy or only 5 second wait. Gas station has ATM.|
Where I stay is not far from the main street. It is a tricky street sometimes I only have to wait 5 seconds to cross and other times 20 minutes. Same with my ride when she pulls out into traffic.
|Out in traffic now.|
|We always hit it just right so we never have to wait.|
|Going across the river. Pipes go across here.|
|Going towards down town.|
|We are turning off to industrial section. This is a local school.|
|Past another local school.|
|My school is behind trees. Next to welding shop. Across from a car repair shop & MPK stalls where we get our lunches.|
Once we get out into traffic it is just a five minute trip to school. Once at school if the bus driver or Director of Studies has gotten there first then they open the big gate and I don't have to do that.
This is the building where the school I work at is located. We don't have the whole building.
These front three rooms on the bottom left side are three of our classrooms. The upper floor is dorm rooms for a local college.
|These 3 rooms are our classrooms.|
I go past the three classrooms and around the corner to the back of the school.
Coming around the corner to the back of the school.
|Another classroom- this is where I shared a desk with 3 teachers last year & another teacher had a desk|
This class is also the boys changing room since it is right next to the boy's bathroom. So, I always had to move when it was time for them to change ( not that I wanted to be in there while they were changing.)
|This is my stop.|
|Looking up at the boy's dorm.|
|Can be convenient or noisy since it shares a wall with my room.|
This is the room I have this year. I have a curtain over the door for when the room is used as a changing room.
This is the desk I use. I got a new one because I was using student desks but with the increase of students I had to give them up. I also got a new book case so I no longer have to pile all the books, etc on the desk. I like a clean desk. I also got a new to me, old computer for use. We all have our own computers now, so we don't have to try coordinate things like filling out the Report Cards on the server. My one poster from "The Lion King" in Singapore.
That concludes my morning commute. Going home my ride uses a different route.
