Anyway, the main cool thing about this training is that they put us up in a nice hotel. I mean really nice. Like seriously. And I'm not just saying that because I've spent the last year staying in the cheapest guesthouses we could find. We were driving up to it and we kept on asking, "Are you sure this is the right place?" and we kept having to reassure ourselves with, "No, this is the place from the link that we were sent." and things like that. When we went to the front desk and I said, "We're here for the BASIS training," I half expected them to say, "We don't have any idea what you're talking about," but it was the right place! I've got a couple pictures of it.
Anyway, the training was good and I met some cool people and I got some work done. I made a fantastic introduction PowerPoint, and I also got to look at what I'll be teaching. All this time I thought I would be teaching US History to sixth graders, but it turns out I'll be teaching World History. I'm cool with that, and I think it will be a little more fun, but at the same time, it's a little daunting, because when I look at the topics I'm supposed to cover, I realized that there are seriously a lot of them that I don't know about. I guess I'll be learning a lot this year, too! At any rate, it was a pretty good week, and the thing that really sucked was that we had to go to some of it on Sunday. But then we got to go up to Phoenix and drive around looking at the temples with our friend Sarah, so that was cool. At any rate, here are some pictures.
