Last Day at Nomen Global

This summer I taught at Nomen Global, a school here in Provo that teaches English as a Second Language to students from all over the world.  My students ranged from many countries--from Saudi Arabia to Peru to Spain and more--and were generally between the ages of 18 and 28.  I taught a variety of classes, including Grammar, Extensive Reading, Integrated Skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking combined) and Learning English through Song.

The job was a blessing to get right after finishing my school year at Timpview and I was grateful to be using my ESL minor.  Of course, as with every teaching job, there are challenges (I had never anticipated that disciplining adults was even necessary, let alone harder than discipling high schoolers) but there were definite highlights (seeing progress in their English, watching them share their talents in a talent show, learning from their cultural backgrounds and more).  

Last Thursday was my last day with my students and I was sad to say goodbye to them.  The pictures above are from my Integrated Skills class, the class that I spent the most time with.  That is a good bunch of people right there.  

Now on to California where I will experience teaching in another setting--subbing in California classrooms!  Who would have thought I would use my teaching degree in so many diverse settings already in such a short time period.
