One of the most unexpected blessings of this job is that I get to learn so many things about the Chinese Culture, #firsthand, from the sweetest, #brighteyed children. It’s super fun that they share their lives with me! I have so much more to learn! 🇨🇳💛
This month I’ve learned different ways that my students celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival! One of their favorite traditions this time of year is eating mooncakes. 🥮🌕 Thanks to my amazing friend @vipkid.teacher.alex my boys and I got to try one too! (Watch my stories for our taste test!) We also enjoyed moon-gazing this weekend.
I’ve discovered how important #LEARNING is in the Chinese Culture. Extracurricular activities, family time, holiday travels, celebrations and hobbies all focus on learning and experiencing. Not to mention the endless homework these babies accomplish. 💪🏼 My students are not only #SMART, but they are filled with #WONDER and #EAGERNESS to learn. 🌏
And of course I can’t wait to celebrate the Chinese New Year with my students again this winter! 🐲🧧🥟 There’s nothing quite like experiencing the magic of the season through a child’s heart!
I’ve loved every minute of this job! And most days I feel like I’m learning and growing just as much as my students are! 💕
