Door #Warmers – Life Up North

18 Oct

​#Changchun (my home city in #China ) just started putting up these red ‘door’ warmers for the winter.  Supposedly, it’s so that our hands don’t freeze to the door handle. πŸ˜±β„  If your doors need anti-freeze mechanisms, It’s time to just give up, bury yourself in a blankie, and hibernate until Spring comes next JULY! (**Apparently, I moved to the frozen tundra 😭)  

To be fair. . . . We’ve been wearing heavy winter coats, hats, Thermal gloves, scarves, and breathing smoke signals since mid-October

This is what happens when there is an 8-day Holiday and then you are the teacher for the 8:00am morning class😜  Break time – they start to crash!

Heading Home

7 Oct

​Waiting to head home to #China!

RANT: Reminded how much I HATE #United Airlines.  Had to pay $100 for my second suitcase – KoreanAir, JAL, Air China, China Southern . . . . all give me two suitcases when flying to Asia from US.  Not the American airline company though!. 

Rant over – now Waiting at my gate 😜 Judging by the #dinosaur bones – it might be a long wait πŸ˜‚ Flight just delayed Due to broken plane. 😣

#Teaching Humor ~ #Holiday Misses

30 Sep

That moment when you are supposed to have 93 students in class, but the school re-scheduled your class for the Saturday before a week long National Holiday. . . . and so only 9 students arrive. Then you go to your 65 student class and have exactly ONE poor boy come alone. Oh well, extra credit handed out and movie party/class about aligning incentives correctly went on like planned πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

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!

Inside Voice, Outside Voice, #Teaching Voice

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.
