It is the start of a brand new school year and most of us, as educators, would have spent a portion of our summer break planning for the next school year. We, here at Teach Middle East Magazine, also spent some of our time planning as well, however, if we know anything, we know that working with children can be very unpredictable and things seem to be a little bit more unpredictable, here in the Middle East. We also know that some of the best moments happen when we have not planned them. Nowhere is this truer than in the classroom. Our students surprise us, excite us and sometimes infuriate us, but no matter what they do, we love and care for them in our own special way, because we are educators.
