Yesterday I was all grim because I didn't get a report card this semester. Today, my cheeks are sore from smiling about my role as a teacher. This, as it turns out, must be what it's all about.
An email from a student whose English name is Wundt:
"All examination ended and a long holiday begin
I can relax for a period
I don't return to YUNNAN province which I am from in hurry, now,I want to stay with classmates about a week in Beijing
Maybe we will go shopping or go to park, just doing something together .
Still remember on your first lesson ,I felt very nervous when
you ask me to read or a question.Later I always wanted to hide in the
back of a classmate,in order to out of your sight, contrary to what I
think ,you always ask me .I thought it made me embarrassed when I
cannot answer the question.
The best thing is that I do not feel intense any more though your asking and practise given in this term !
I am very lucky for your student to spend this time with you!
How about your vacation?Are you return to America or stay in china!
Maybe the developed America is attractive!
Have a good holiday!"
I'm glowing. Absolutely beaming with a sense of accomplishment. Even if only this one student is appreciative of my efforts, it was all worth it.
