    could you tell me your fundamental goal of establishing a blog about new channel school? do you wanna build a platform to communicate other students or to make a advertisement of the school?

  4. ccxixicc:

    Very good question. You’re right that there is certainly a promotional aspect to a blog like this, and it would be silly for me to deny it. I’m happy if people decide to come to our school after seeing this blog.

    That said, though, this is my personal blog, and my primary reason for having it is to provide a platform for communicating with students and sharing my ideas. I’ve spent years with large classes of students, and while I’ve enjoyed the experience, I miss the chance to connect with individuals, and I think this blog provides an excellent opportunity.

    So, in answer to your question, I see the fundamental purpose of this blog to be providing a service to students and a platform for me to communicate with students.

    Does that make sense?

  5. You are so great and earnest. I recognized so many teachers in your school, such as Bob Li, who has a excellent gift in the creative education. But you definitely spent much time on your students, and you regard your students as intimate friends ,not as clients. you spirit fascinate us and cheer us up. You will gain the much higher esteem of your students if keeping contact with them.
