I am grateful for being able to come to China to teach for the second time. Every moment here is a learning experience for all of the students and the professors that are here. Even though I have been here before, I still have much to learn about the language and the culture, and I have much to learn about myself too.
I'd like to take this time to thank every single person who made this trip possible and everyone who is on this trip with us. I am grateful and appreciative of the hard work everyone does every single day in and out of the teacher setting and I am sure everyone is as grateful as I am to be here experiencing the world together in a whole new way that some of us may not be used to. I would also like to thank my teaching partner, Julia, who is teaching a class for the first time, yet is already a better teacher than I am. I am excited as we still have a lot of time left here to make more memories and a lot of time to continue to grow and prosper.
