End of A School Year

by dimensionaltales

As of today, I have completed my first year as a big boy teacher and I am so proud of myself.  If you recall, my first job as an educator was at a training center (Owen) and I loved every bit of it. The students were wonderful, my colleagues were supportive sweethearts, and my main boss was cool. The only problem I had with the training center, aside from my immediate supervisor, was that it wasn’t my speed. But Limai, on the other hand…

Limai gave me the freedom I needed to teach my students in a way that would be helpful and insightful. They were even considerate enough to let me bring in books from the West that I grew up on while introducing reading programs. What was even more amazing was the fact that the students and their parents were loving it. Or, at least, I think they did.

Speaking of the students, I got to see two classes graduate with great honors. One of my twelfth graders got a huge scholarship to a university in the States while my eighth graders were surprised – and happy – that I was going to be their teacher for next year’s ELA.  They had shocked Pikachu’s face. Additionally, my seventh graders have improved the most throughout the years. Bear in mind, that one of my students had a mom who tried to bribe me as she did with the other teachers (she was pissed when I didn’t budge) and another student couldn’t link a sentence together. Now, they are speaking in full words and semi-complete sentences.

Now that China has banned Western textbooks (yes! they’ve done that), my school has to change the way we teach our students due to accommodate the new ridiculous laws. We also have to fix up the new ELA Room as well as expand the Reading Program to the rest of the room. I honestly can’t wait to see what the new school year has in store for me and my students and how I can improve on my teaching abilities.

Now, please, don’t forget to follow me on my social media platforms (TwitterFacebookInstagram, and Goodreads) on my web page’s right side. Also, I do love hearing suggestions of what books to read outside of my norm (Science fiction and fantasy) as I am a part of the Goodreads’ reading challenge for 2022. My goal is to read 180 books this year and I’m already at 125.
