Here at last!!!

Well after months of planning, I am finally here in this beautiful country of China. I have spent this week settling into my new home and becoming familiar with the campus. It is so gorgeous and everything is so green. It feels like there are small botanical gardens placed all around the campus. The coolest thing is to go out early in the morning and see groups of people doing Tai Chi or yoga in the grass. Everyone here is so active that it is very inspiring to get up and get moving!
I have an orientation next week and will find out more about when classes start and which courses I will be teaching. I am very excited to begin preparing for class and am ready to meet my students. I have met a couple of students so far, but don't know if they will be in my class or not.
The next few weeks will be challenging as I continue to prepare for the school year. However, I know that God will continue to equip me with the knowledge and skills I need as I plan the lessons and then implement them into the classroom.
