This is how my first day of school went.
Today I went to school. It was my first day of school. At first, I was kind of nervous but when I got there, I met a friend right away. I can’t remember her name. She speaks English. She speaks more English than Kreyol. She’s black but I don’t know if she’s Haitian or not. Here's a picture of me talking to her. Can't find me? Here's a hint-- I am the only white girl.
The teacher, Madam Nicole, said I was the best in the class. I wonder if I really am or if she was just saying that to make me feel good. It did make me feel good.
When I got to school today I thought I was supposed to be in second grade, but, when they took me to my class it turned out I was supposed to be in third grade. So, I had to look at someone else’s book during class and then buy the third grade books after class.
One thing that’s a little difficult is that the class is in French. I speak English and I speak Kreyol, but I only speak a little bit of French. So, thank goodness, I didn’t tell my teacher I speak French, so she is giving me two weeks to learn French and she will translate for me into Kreyol until then. So I guess I will speak French in two weeks. I was going to tell her that I didn’t need most of her translations, but then I remembered if she gave me some time to learn MORE French that would be better… so I kept it a secret.
I will keep you posted!
