    I went to attend the teacher's conference held in White Mountains last weekend. It is called exploring art in the nature. It is so wonderful. Some artists, writers like Clare Walker, storytellers like Rebecca Rule, musicians, composers, dancers went to the Crawford North and taught art or music teachers in this area about new ways in applying art in education. I enjoyed it quite a lot. I went to the workshop of a Nigerian artist and worked for him as his assistant.

    Before I arrived in America, I heard varied opinions of American classes and kids. I felt really horrified when I thought that I had to face the challenges. It almost ruined my first ten days before the school started in Gilmore Academy. Anyhow things happened as they should happen.

For class I prepared many holiday related activities such as having my students make lanterns, ox masks and paper cuttings, sing holiday songs, write Chinese calligraphy, make dumplings out of play dough and then eat the fried dumplings I made.

    Students told me they wanted to learn American songs. Every week I teach them the names and locations of one or two new states, so I played “Sweet Home Alabama” as a way to introduce that state.

    On the first day of Chinese New Year, we had a small parade at school. We talked to some teachers the day before New Year and paraded into their classrooms including the main office on New Year's Day. We asked the students questions about Chinese New Year and handed out red envelopes to those who gave the right answers. (Actually, a few days before that we had put up posters with information about Spring Festival.) We even served them with more than 200 dumplings.
