I'm sitting here in a coffee shop near my apartment because we lost electricity in our whole building. As I'm catching up on emails, lesson planning for next week, and reconnecting with friends and family back in the US. I came across a beautiful and encouraging letter written by a mother of a Sandy Hook victim to all teachers in America.
This letter has uplifted me, whole-heartedly, because it reminded me why I am here in China, teaching these precious Kindergarteners. Tomorrow I will walk into my classroom with courage, with faith, and with love for my students.
