Alumni Comments 2007

We want to thank you once again for the wonderful experience of teaching in China. You provided us with an unforgettable opportunity and so many memories that will last a lifetime. We've had fun organizing all of the photos and reminiscing about the children and our colleagues and the many places and experiences. Lance and I feel really fortunate that we were able to do this together. We appreciated all of the organization you put into this project. You thought of everything we could ever have needed ....and more. Thank you

The longer that I am home, the more I realize the impact of the experience on me. I think about it every day. The overall organization of the tours was very good. I especially appreciated the Itinerary. I also thought it was excellent planning to have us tour for 3 days before going to Tongxiang. We got to get over our jetlag and bond with each other before starting school. We saw SO many sights, the tour guides were very good, and the buses comfortable. It was wonderful to have the guides check us in at the airports. Not knowing the language could have been so scary if we had not had their help. All the people who worked with us tried very hard to get whatever we wanted and to make us feel at home.

I want to first say thank you for a wonderful experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the touring. I knew it would be challenging but you saw a great deal and to have a little in the beginning (to get over the jet lag) and the longer part at the end was perfect. The lectures at the school were a wonderful plus. I appreciated everyone’s efforts for this. I liked them in the afternoon even though it makes for a long day. I also thought the schedule was fine. I even had some time at lunch to close my eyes for a power nap. The food at the school was wonderful! I was happy to incorporate more cooperative frameworks for learning because the students hadn’t experienced learning in those modes. Their feedback to me was that they enjoyed the hands on learning, the movement, music and the little bit of art I was able to incorporate. I can’t say enough about my experience. I hope you will consider me for next year’s program. I am definitely interested in returning.

Thank you for a great experience in China. The tours were great. I appreciated the travel time prior to teaching to adjust to the local time and the time to bond with the group. The school support exceeded my expectations. Everyone was very cooperative and willing to provide anything we needed
