Happy New Year of 2014!

I made this to be part of my New Year resolutions: I want to continue to improve my teaching and I wish I will be a better teacher in 2014. So in the new year, I will strive my best to,

  • Come out more ideas to better control the classroom
  • Think about more efficient and fun ways to engage students
  • Find more interesting and informational staff
  • Improve my teaching skills
  • Improve communications with both parents and students
  • Better organize parties to get parents involved

I would love to see everybody follow me on this blog and be my witness!

This first Chinese lesson in the spring semester is on how to say family members in Chinese. Great! Because I produced a series of videos on family members in 2009. The content matched the vocabulary required by the textbook. So I decided to use the video as part of teaching materials for students to watch and practice at home.
