My main purpose for coming to China this semester was to make some sort of a difference, even if very small, in the lives of these beautiful kids. Within this last month of teaching I have grown to love these kids in an amazing way. Even though I cannot speak Chinese and hardly communicate with them verbally at all, I love them so much. I am so grateful to be here and have the opportunity to get to know all of them! I cannot think about the day when I will have to leave them. So, I will make the best of the time that I have here with them!
Here are some pictures of the kids, our classrooms, and some of the teachers teaching. So far teaching has been amazing. We are getting to know all of the kids so well and they are learning so much! We have 50 students all together that we teach for about 3 hours every day. Each rotation last 25 minutes and then we also have an opening and a closing. I am actually not teaching with the other teachers during this time because I am the head teacher. My job is awesome though, I get to walk around and watch all the teachers do their job. Sometimes I will teach for them as an example so they can get some tips on how to teach better. I also help them with their own teaching every day and I make sure that everything runs smoothly. I love being able to get to know all of the kids so well, in this short time I have already been able to see them grow and learn so much!
