Emotions after 1 week: I was too idealistic beforehand. Here I realized that I cannot change much. Only thing I can do is be there for the kids and give love. What impact to I want to have? I believe that the best way to learn something is to figure it out, but here they are focusing on memorizing. I hope I can change that.
