This is Lucy, one my newest students (as of Spring 2015).
Eiffel and Mini
Yaya with Her David
Each student has an English name. But sometimes I have a hard time calling students by their English name. For some reason, I think that their Chinese name is more suitable.
First Day of Class
Surprise for Sarah
I spent a little extra on a rose cake. I was told that the cake was actually owe flavored. It was, in fact, delicious. But I am not sure if it tasted like rose. At one point, Sarah held back some tears. She said that this was the first time that she has been surprised with a cake. It was the first time she had been given a cake at work. Also, it was the first time that she has celebrated a birthday away from her family. I am glad that we could make it special. Sometimes, the little things means the most. It was an important memory for everyone present.
A small wood carving of a Chinese goddess given to me from one of the parents that he hand carved. It sits at the window behind my office desk.
