Local Chinese Restaurant

Just a pic of one restaurant up the block from the new secondary school. I pass by this daily. It is one of at least four similar restaurants in that block. They all look about the same and every block has 3 to 5 of them. The Chinese characters (in red) of this one say they sell Rice, Dumplings, Noodles, (no kidding, that is a surprise), they make most items with lots of cheap hand labor. Many people grab a chair and sit on the sidewalk to eat.

Here is a pic of some of the students that did singing Valentines last Thursday and Friday at the Sec. School.


Tim Presents at the PD 14 Day on Computer Technology

All staff members attend the PD14 day

Saturday Feb. 14 th was a half day professional development day for our school. All teachers attended professional workshops that were designed, organized, created, and led by a team of teachers on a committee which I chaired. Lots of work to put that together in China. Every step is much more complex than it would be in the states. Overall it was a well received day and if the evaluation sheets are any indication of direction, we will probably have more of the same very soon. Here are some pics from the day and this a link to some of the presentations that were given that day.
