Teaching English online

A couple of months ago I was laid up for about a month with a badly sprained ankle.  The doctor said, keep your foot elevated and stay off of it as much as possible.  Fortunately it was January and February, which aren’t necessarily great months to be outside in Florence, Italy.

During that time I decided to give an online English teaching company a whirl, to see if I liked it.  It turned out to be a pretty big commitment in terms of getting certified, but, as I said, I had a lot of sedentary time on my hands.  I did give it a whirl and much to my amazement, I really love teaching English to school children in China!

Today was a very gratifying day; I’m about 2 months into actual teaching.  One of my fav students drew my portrait today and I am only too proud to show it to you! I think the artist captured my essence and wiped away at least 10 years, which I appreciate!  :-))

And here is Yang, the budding artist who drew me:
