Work at Madison

Time passed quickly, It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve been working at Madison. There are a lot of challenges and difficulties in the work , but surprises and happiness as well.

I’m working with Miss Lu, a very experienced teacher, who taught me a lot of things about how to be a good teacher in elementary school. I really enjoy to working with her, I have my small group everyday, we paly games, read books, do exercises in groups. It’s totally different from what we teach in China, which is very interesting to me.

I wake up very early in the morning, the beginning of the work in madison is helping students to get their breakfast. I feel so good when students say “thank you” , at this time, every students look like an angle to me.

After breakfast, every student will sit in the carpet to start a day of study. They have Chinese, math, PE and art classes. At 9:00 am they’ll have some desert, at 11:45 am they’ll have lunch at cafeteria. After lunch they’ll still have classes till 2:00 pm. Help them to learn Chinese is my first goal, I realize some of the student did a really great job in Chinese, and most of the students really enjoy Chinese class. I feel so happy to see all the students works so hard to study Chinese, it’s such a pleasure that I can be here to help them!

Next month I’ll be at Metro Deaf School in Saint Paul. These days I’m trying to learn ASL as much as I can. It’s still hard for me, but I’ll try my best to do it. Hope I can do a really good job at MDS.
