The training weekend in Ohio at Cedarville University went well. The new people are great and it's going to be a fun year. Among other things, we talked about differences between American and Chinese cultures, began to study the language, and participated in teaching workshops. Training benefits the new teachers the most, but it's also a good review for the veterans, as well. We spent a lot of time in the classroom, but also made room for some water balloon volleyball on the tennis courts.
Here are new teachers this year, but they're not all in the picture above:
