In my video I just show the fun highlights! But working at a kindergarten can be challenging. You always have to have high energy…not to mention high patience. Not just in teaching an English lesson and managing 31 students, but also in other parts of the day.
I do exercises with them, games, breakfast, lunch, fruit time, everything. I’m responsible for keeping the kids entertained and engaged in the activities, and also making sure they’re safe, not fighting with each other (they fight over their chairs and toys all the time), checking to see if they wet their pants, wiped their noses, drank all their water, etc!
I really do have SO much fun at the kindergarten and I love my students so much. I can’t imagine not seeing them every morning now. But there is a lot of hard work that goes in before, during, and after work at the kindergarten. And I’m only there half the day – I have so much respect for the other Chinese teachers there and anyone else who teaches young kids on the daily!
