#Students – Always Pushing, Pushing

7 Mar
๐Ÿ‘ธMe: Only one rule – You MUST use nasdaq.com or marketwatch.com so you can become familiar with international finance tools. It’s important to know how the rest of the world works! ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ“Š๐Ÿ’น๐ŸŒ
๐Ÿ‘งStudent: Can I use this random Chinese company I found on a different website. It’s really easy for me to find cause it’s all Chinese.
๐Ÿ‘ธMe: Is it on nasdaq or marketwatch?
๐Ÿ‘งStudent: . . . . No.
๐Ÿ‘ธMe: . . . . . . . . . .๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ™„
๐Ÿ‘งStudent: Never mind Teacher! I Know.
๐Ÿ‘ธMe: ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ™ƒ

The Robot Life – Human Style

8 Jan

We are raising today’s children in sterile, risk-averse and highly structured environments. In so doing, we are failing to cultivate artists, pioneers and entrepreneurs, and instead cultivating a generation of children who can follow the rules in organized sports games, sit for hours in front of screens and mark bubbles on standardized tests.

Final’s Week Conversations

28 Dec

Student 1– “How many chances do I have to do the Final Exam.”
Me — “One” ?!?
Student 1– “But I want to go to graduate school!”
Me — “Then you sure as heck better be able to do this test in one try or graduate school is probably a no-go!”
Student 1– “0_0 oh, I know.”
Me — “Then why oh why did you ask?!?!?!”

Student 2– “Teacher, some people in my class have very bad grades. Can we fix it.”
Me — A) this is finals week for the semester, so no. B) your grades are bad because you cheated on 2 assignments, failed to complete 4 assignments, gave me one-word answers for other assignments, and skipped class 4+ times. So don’t you think you should have worried about your grades then instead of now? — And you are the class leader — you should have led your class better, instead your group has the worst participation.”
Student 2 — “Oh. Ok teacher. I know.”
Me — “Then why oh why oh why did you ask?!?!?!?!?!?!”

My Students ROCK!

25 May

I just absolutely love my students so much. Spent the night talking with a couple of them and had a wonderful time. The first gave me the wonderfully thought out present of a small piano music box, with a photo of my mom and me inside and a small engraving “With Love” from her. Isn’t that wonderful? She knew I loved Piano and hunted two days to buy it for me. I just adore her. โคย The other was a wonderful young man I’m teaching now. He has traveled to all but one of the Chinese provinces with his friends and just got a passport to check out Russia. ๐Ÿ™‚ย He has a new idea about how to create green energy that sounds fascinating and I really wish him the best! His health isn’t great though (His heart is bad), so I would ask that you all pray for him. We spoke about his hopes, dreams, and how he is trying so hard to do his best for his family. A real encouragement and just inspiration for me.ย โค

Oh, and did I mention that another girl brought my COOKIE DOUGH ICE CREAM! ย Honest-to-God Cookie Dough Ice Cream. REAL AMERICAN ICE CREAM. Since apparently many of the Chinese are lactose intolerant, they make their ice cream from water instead of milk. Meaning it lacks the good old flavor. Now I have some actually delicious ice cream! ย I am so wonderfully blessed by God. Best Job Ever!!
