I'm a Mormon. I'm a Mom. I live in China. Although I'm not always the biggest fan of labels, those 3 things are fairly core to who I am, hence the name of this blog. I am married to the most wonderful person I've ever met, and am Mom to 3 great kids who keep me constantly learning! I am passionate about my family, education, my faith, travel, food, friendship, and living life to the fullest. Welcome to my blog!
So, this is what I did last week---introduced some of Panyu's best English teachers to the Columbia readers and writers workshop model as an approach to literacy instruction. It was interesting, to say the least. These are Chinese middle and high school English teachers, and 30 of them were chosen from over 12 school districts in the Panyu area to take part in a 3-week course taught by faculty from Brigham Young University. I was lucky enough to be included as part of the faculty team for the course.
