Good-bye, China

I have administered and graded the final exams and have completed my 10 month teaching contract with Zhengzhou No. 1 Middle School. My contract and my residence permit expired on the 30th of June and I left the country to go to Japan for a 9 day holiday. I will be returning to the United States on July 9th!

I will miss my amazing students:

Grade 1 (10th grade)

My SAT class brought me "feel-better" medicine when I lost my voice.

My sweet grade 2 (11th)

Lisa, Jim, and Jesse. From my grade 3 (12th). 

My best student, Jim, from grade 3. 

My grade 3. I miss them so.

Jim, Cathy, & Amy from grade 3 (12th) threw me a birthday party!

Cathy, Amy, Lisa, Jim, and their two friends for my birthday party.

Captures Jesse's personality beautifully :) Jesse, from grade 3 (12th)
