Life of Wendi, Part III

I just started my second year teaching in China. We are at a new school and I am ESL coordinator and Grade 3/4 head teacher. It is an IB World school in Ningbo, and we are enjoying it here very much. My son turned 18 (!!!!!!) and is teaching ESL and computers at the school to the little ones. That is great. We are both working on our Chinese, and I am looking to do my third degree in a Masters program online. This year we are going to travel to Beijing, Xian, Yunnan, and possibly Thibet. I would also like to try to get to Cambodia and Vietnam. Looking forward to another amazing year of growth and experiences. More later...

Love and Light, Wendi Laing
