What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): This was one of the toughest classes I’ve had in a while. First, I was late (came at 902, and the learners were already there). Then the door was locked. There was a child who wasn’t really able to be quiet (until the end). We tried to incorporate him into the activities, and it just wasn’t working.. one of the learners wanted me to use a book about barack obama, which was cool. I had a map that was just not good, and one learner couldn’t see. We ended up trading off the child so that each person could spend a little time practicing, mostly reading/pronunciation practice. Both learners said they’d be unavailable the following class day
