Teacher’s Day

China celebrates Teacher’s Day.  On it, there is a half-day of classes and students use the afternoon to visit their old teachers.  Teachers are very highly respected in China and students often give their teacher’s small gifts and notes.  I’ve gotten all kinds of stuffed animals, flowers, and notes in the past.  I thought I’d share this card with you this year – I think I’ll have to keep it for a long time!  (Right click on the image and click “view image” to view it larger with the text visible.)

This year there was a big assembly-type gathering the week following Teacher’s Day to commemorate the 60th anniversary of modern China and Teacher’s Day.  4000 students on a field looks like this:

Our group of teachers performed along with the other teachers, and you can go to Facebook and check out the performance here since I didn’t upload it to YouTube.  It’s worth watching because Joel rolls across the stage as a human bowling ball into a bunch of teachers who are human bowling pins… and there’s much much more!  Jiao Shi Jie Kuai Le!
