Sometimes I have feelings that I haven’t done enough for the kids though, maybe I can be more patient; maybe there is a better way, maybe I can perform better. The kids give me a lot of support and encouragement. From the loud greetings in the hallway to the hugs at the end of the day, and the masterpieces given to me they made by their own. All of these make me feel warm, meanwhile, encourage me to do better in the future.
Sometimes making good friends with the kids will make bad influence on your classroom management. The authority image of teachers need to be sustained and enhanced. Mixing compliments and warnings would be a good chocie.
This week, we had our first snow in Forest Lake, me and the children are quite excited. Although there is still one and half months till Christmas, the children start drawing Christmas trees already. I hope I can learn a lot of stuff with the kids before the end of the semester.
I attend a professional development workshop organized by Hanban, located in confucius institute of Kentucky university this weekend. The workshop is quite organized and full, I got a lot inspiration. Thanks a lot to Hanban and my country!
In LILA, the settings of the classroom is quite different from China. Teacher’s office desk is just inside the classroom. The kids sit on the carpet in front of the white board when they learn for the most of the time. Classroom has sink and sofa too. Plus the decorates of the Chinese elements and the kids’ projects, the classroom seems very cozy and relaxing.
Every week, I will rotate between two different classes, cooperating with two different teachers. In this way, I can get familiar with all of the kids in a short time. Also I get the chance to learn from two brilliant senior teachers. I believe it help me a lot, and I hope I can be more and more professional in the following days. LOL

And also after these weeks work, i find that lila is more and more attracted to me. we have awesome students, awesome co-workers, awesome principles and so on! I hope in the following days i can work hard and cherish the days here!
