My first full week of teaching is over – and I have sung this song about 50 times this week!! Its stuck in my head – make it go away…haha
Seriously, teaching is the most rewarding job I have ever had. I have had many, but the job where you see faces light up when you come in a room, or walk down the hall – it’s the best feeling ever. I doubted myself coming to China to teach young kids. But man, they absorb everything and are so anxious and excited to see you. Other than motherhood (which will always be number 1), this is the best job ever.
And one of my favourite things to say to my kids when they speak Chinese to me – ting bu dong – it makes them laugh every time!!
