Ráhel smiled as she looked around at her Geography room. It looked the same as it had last year, but since she had new students, it shouldn't really matter too much. She had redone the top corner of the board, where the date was written, in addition to a quick reference guide for how to pronounce her last name (Shar-koe-zi). It had come in handy, the previous years, and prevented headaches on both sides.
After a quick glance around, Ráhel walked around, laying down an upside-down worksheet on each table, and then pinning each down with a tablet. That done, she returned to the front and got ready to greet her class.

While the summer had been great, Kona was glad to have some more structure to her days once again. School wasn't the worst thing in the world for that, at least it wasn't just endless free time with too many options all bouncing around.
She found the geography classroom easily enough and stepped inside with a smile, greeting her teacher with a quick wave and then picking a seat in the middle of the space. She raised an eyebrow at the iPad on her desk, but decided not to mess with it, instead pulling out a notebook and a pencil.

There were times when Avery loved her hearing aid, and times where it just led her to frustration. Walking the halls with Saskia was one of the latter, so she'd turned it off while walking to classes, just focusing on finding the room her geography class would be held in.
That wasn't actually too difficult, as it turned out, and she walked into the room with a few minutes to spare, smiling at the teacher and then glancing around the room. It didn't seem to have assigned seating, which left her with quite the choice - all but one of the seats were empty. Finally, she picked one in the middle of the front row, hoping it would give her the best view of the teacher. She settled Saskia off to her side and then turned on her hearing aid before she pulled out her notebook and pencil.

Kyoto had been filled with a mixture of apprehension and excitement about the start of classes, ad now they had started apprehension was coming up trumps, as the classes here were a little more full-on than what she was used to.
After having to be pointed in the right direction a couple of times, she finally found her Geography classroom. Walking in, she quickly found a desk where she could see the board properly. She gave her fellow classmates a smile before she dug around in her bag, which she was sure got bigger every time she needed to take something out of it, and placed notebook and pen on her desk. A giggle escaped her as she opened the book and a paper crane popped up. She had forgotten that she had stored a number of creatures in her notebooks to keep them safe.

Ráhel was glad to see that her students weren't the kind to hide in the back of the classroom. It was a small enough class, they could all participate without craning their necks. Not that today was going to be too discussion-based, but that would change too.
"Good morning, everyone. As you may have read already, my name is Ms. Sárközi. Welcome to Geography, which I hope you guys will find at least slightly interesting." She paused for a moment, then continued, "Today we're not going to play the normal 'get to know you' games, but instead, will be exploring where you are from, and especially looking at the geography of it. You will have twenty minutes of class to answer the questions on your worksheet, as well as give me at least one interesting fact about where you grew up." She paused again, thinking, then added, "In this class, I will treat you as if you can manage your own time, as long as you make it work. So if you want to listen to music - with headphones - or chit chat during worksheet time, that's your choice. As long as the work is done by the end of the time I set, it's up to you."
With that, she set her laptop to project on the whiteboard and started a timer, "And your time starts now. Twenty minutes for the worksheet in front of you, you can use the tablet or your phones for assistance."
