how to keep a tropical igloo from melting :)

high moment in ESL teaching

on February 8, 2011

I’ve been teaching an 8 year-old girl for a month now.There were times it became so frustrating because she would only say “yes” or “no”. I guess she had an extremely hard time to express herself in English. After two weeks she started showing me her toys and that’s about the only thing we talked about in class. I saw this as an improvement because at least she was trying to communicate with me.

Last night, she told me she had a gift for me. She made a card that was flower-shaped and she wrote the words: I love teacher Kim. It melted my heart. I wish I had taken a picture of it. It was the first time a student actually thanked me. =)
