An American Abroad

Starting the Goodbyes

I have just one more month left of teaching here in China at Shane English Yuxi. I’ve already begun the process of handing off my students to other teachers. Today was my last class with some eight-year-olds I have grown very fond of. I wish them all well.

I’ve been assisted by a wonderful TA, Angela, who really deserves most the the credit for getting these kids up to snuff.
