In addition to the face of children, there are many other aspects of the growth.
When students do before, some not too clear, a little knowledge is not very urgently necessary is too lazy to look up. But now because it is a teacher, have a responsibility in, must want to convey to students the correct knowledge. Many times a word of stroke or winding pitch, to verify a few times to tell children. Teach the wrong once in a while, also to admit his mistakes corrected in a timely manner. Deeply feel the importance of precept, children are most likely to imitate the people around, as a teacher, in word and deed includes all at the moment in life standard. Be a good example.
Also know that really is the simplest happy time at school, just learn well teach well. Even internships can take a share responsibility, cannot say casually go walk, also is bad to ask for leave, disturb you plan, let more don’t do things for themselves. Lecture during the day and night lessons, check a lot of information, to many aspects of children may be asked, also really exercise yourself.
Sincerely thank you for this half a year to the United States practice life, no matter from career planning or from the heart and life, is a great exercise. Here the dribs and drabs, are worthy of cherished memories and later.
In the concept of the Chinese people, eating is more important, to share and eat the next thing to share the growth of some other aspects.
Is, after all, he was in school more than ten years, didn’t really come out, this time to the United States, although is internship, but also serious first job. Everyone is confident treat the muster all his strength. But American children and Chinese children are really is very different, American children no matter who you are, even if you are a teacher, what you say is justified let me convinced, children will listen to the teacher said. But our preconceived notions is children will respect the teacher, so I work at first, also not be less children have to say a word, almost everyone has been more or less gas to cry.
But the more the situation has changed a lot, are all young people together to discuss and change their methods and strategies, slowly let children to believe in yourself, with the details of daily care and help, good for him. Quickly lined up a large number of children, let they can darling listen to the class teacher in the classroom. Everyday can also often and they chat, discuss some cartoon movies, introduce some Chinese things to children. Now the most unfortunately child just familiar with us, but not far from the time we leave.

Say first to eat, before at home, at home with mom and dad to cook, also give me a hand, often wash dishes brush to brush a bowl, but is never is cooking, also did not seriously to learn cooking. But after coming to the United States, really experienced a meal not hungry belly of life. The United States than domestic, even if parents are not at home, his lazy, called a take-away next to a restaurant is also very convenient. Take-out here also is very inconvenient, eating out is not very convenient also, more importantly, used to eat rice and various stir-fries and we really can not adapt to the American food hamburger cheese bread. So I began to try his cooking, will only cooking surface occurred at the beginning, the steam rice Fried dishes. Does not meet the greediness, later have no matter son to study some recipes, unexpectedly also own a few tries out some of the food can also come, lunch to school every day also is to let a lot of American teacher saw the riches of the Chinese diet. With a focus on the daily show mom and dad, mom and dad are happy daughter should go out for a few months has learned cooking, eat healthy is also very good.
