Teacher's Day in Saudi
One thing that is different about working in Riyadh is the celebration of Teacher's Day. Our school celebrates it in October, although in America it lands during the second term of the school year instead of the first. I smiled so gratefully, being the total cheeseball that I am, when I came into my office on a school morning and found that my supervisor had left me--and every other teacher--a nice surprise (coffee mug!) complete with balloons.
Balloons and coffee mugs on Teacher's Day are definitely a perk to working here. Yays!
