Here at Primavera English we try to cultivate studious atmospheres in our classes. However, when I’m not teaching English, I enjoy cultivating our small vegetable garden in the back yard. Right now, there are beans, spinach, tomatoes, and cucumbers. When it’s hot I water at least once if not twice a day, though lately the rain has been taking care of that - almost too much! And with all the rain, the weeds are thriving. But, not to worry, because weeding is quite therapeutic. I find it a great way to formulate my lesson plans for the next English class!
