Spanish word of the day

My new favorite Spanish word: sinverg├╝enza. It means "a shameless person." I anticipate needing to use this word regularly in El Salvador. :)

In other news, my teaching evals came back, and the results were very interesting! My kids overall liked me as a teacher, but think that my class can use a greater variety of assignments. (Specifically, more projects and fewer worksheets, which is perhaps not surprising, because I had basically modeled the unit structures after the honors track... And ultimately, those units are too worksheet-heavy for my non-honors kids.) This gives me something concrete to work towards next year, so I am really glad that I decided to do the survey!
