September 10th was Teacher’s Day in China, the day students and administration recognize their teachers for all the hard work and efforts. I’m always impressed by how many students actually take the time to stop and tell me thanks or Happy Teacher’s day – yesterday, my entire class stood up and wished me a great day! It really is a great time for teachers and student to connect, reaching out to one another. Personally, I believe it is also a great day for teachers to reach out to the students and thank them for being so attentive and working so hard for them. I always like to stop and tell them how much I appreciate their time and efforts, and to let them know I respect them for actually working with me instead of cheating their way through.
I really do have great students!
