Teaching In China

It has been awhile and unfortunately, due to time, I blog more on Tumblr for my family. Recently, I have posted relating to teaching so I thought I would share. I did post Halloween crafts I did here on Tumblr that the children really enjoyed. Halloween is still non existant for the Chinese. ...

Checked by the gov't

11-10-13 Checked by the gov't I understood today how foreigners feel when police are near. I had my boss and a government guy walk into my class today and ask if I had my passport. My heart kind of jumped and I asked why. Of course I didn’t though; I don’t carry it on me for fear of losing...

I had quite a long day. The moral is a little better in the office. Last week I asked a question about where to meet for marketing and he went on a rant about my friend Laura this and that and stormed off. Sadly he was just promoted to ‘Senior teacher’. This really means he gets fewer...

Trip to the doctor...

Trip to the doc. 8-3-13 I thought this posted yesterday, but it didn’t save! Well I had to go get my physical yesterday in China, because of course, China’s visa area wouldn’t accept mine from the states! What an experience, that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone! The place as a whole is a...

Volunteering at an orphange

I had a great experience. Very eye opening to the culture thought to be the same! There are 200 kids between 2 buildings. 75% of the children have a disability or illness. It ranged from a gland problem where the child's face and body had brown patches of skin that resembled burns, being...
