Teaching Confusion. . . .

24 Sep
I have more than 600 students this semester between all three classes I teach (I teach the entire junior and sophomore years – – all majors). But there is always that magic moment when a student adds me on Wechat with the profile image of a random (though adorable) bunny, the username “RainbowsareCute🌺” and the clarifying statement “Teacher, I am your student. What chapter is for the next class?. . . . . .
Β 
Well, that’s a VERY good question. If I knew how I knew you, I could possible know the answer πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ’š Let us now ponder the mystery together!

Good Morning!

#Teaching Joys #1

16 Sep

❀ Ran into my student at the Starbucks today. She came up and said hi. Then she told me that she’s seen me there once before – but she was too scared to say hello. She was so proud of herself today! Kept giggling with her friends behind the counter. Took us a bit, but we figured out her major and her class. I love my students so much. Watching them blossom, grow braver, and just mature is such a wonderful blessing. #thegoodlife #iloveteaching

#Zhengzhou was on #TeenWolf!

13 Sep

Hahahah. . . . . Zhengzhou (the city I used to live in) made it onto Teen Wolf as a magical center. Unfortunately they called it zeng zow πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ€” On the one hand, woop! That’s totally awesome. On the other. . . . . If you’re gonna stick a city in your show, you should at least say its name correctly.

Inside Voice, Outside Voice, #Teaching Voice

12 Sep

Roger (the totally awesome IT guy) came to class today to install a new microphone. He asked if I needed one. I said “No, I’m pretty loud without it.” Girl in the back of a room of roughly 96 students — “Oh yes, we can hear very good.” Me: πŸ€£πŸ˜‚. . . Roger: Oh. I think you do not need this. It’s okay. Me: LOL. I thought not.

Yeongjong-do #Island

9 Sep

The eastern end of Yeongjong-do Island in #Inchon, #southkorea.
The ICN airport is on one end, and this park & #fishmarket is at the other. We’re staying at the Royal Emporium hotel tonight. My school booked a cheap hotel for us, which happened to be a brand new, beautiful place right on the #waterfront. One hour Ride on bus 203 from the airport. No foreigners, and lots of yummy cafes, Fish shops, Beer & chicken stops, etc. So much fresh Flounder, Lobsters, Shrimp, and crabs! The crowd is great & atmosphere is upbeat. You can also take the ferry to Wolmido from here!
