Tiya’s diary on August 29
This is the first school day, although the teachers including me have been on 7 days workshop. Exciting and nervous is surrounding.
“Tiya, you are the Chinese teacher here, you are the only one who can speak Chinese in our school, you can help a lot for kids” Ms. Grewing said, the principal.
“Tiya you look small, but you have knowledge of your language, and kids here need that, go ahead, enjoy your life in CHS ” Mr. Mullin said, the president.
“Could you give me some of the tips for the class here, Ms. Grewing. Shall I listen to the kids first then arrange the teaching plan? ”
“Yes, yes, yes. Kids in CHS are excellent, they have their own idea, listen first then talk with them, the more you know your kids the easier your class will be.”
“Thanks, Ms. Grewing, I will try to make friends with them and hearing more from them .”
Finished above conversation with the principal. I started my first week’s work with kids in CHS.
