Day 274: Tribute to Eighth Grade

23 May


The fastest week of our time in China has now (already!) passed, and we officially have one week of school left. This means that as of 4:10 this afternoon, I will never teach my eighth grade students again.

So, to honor all the fun (and patience-trying lessons I learned) experienced in my classes, here’s a tribute post to the eighth grade classes at the Hebei Baoding Eastern Bilingual School in the 2013-2014 school year.

J2 -2 (“Alisha” has to get in the picture too!):

J2 – 3 (some of them, at least):
J2.3 - Version 2

J2 – 4 (half of them; this class definitely knows who Cobe Bryant is – they may or may not be under the impression that I personally know him…):

J2 – 5 (happiest class who no matter how hungry they were, would not let me send them off to lunch early):

J2 – 6 (those two in the front, may have the best English in their grade):

J2 – 7 (some of them saying goodbye):

Next week, we might only have Monday – Wednesday classes because of Children’s Day Festival celebrations (plenty of pictures are sure to come from that – of us and by us) and then we’ll be leaving the following Tuesday. 17 fun-packed days until we’re on a flight back home…

Thank you and until next time,


(Happy 100 posts!)
