I feel so lucky to be selected as one of the 12 teacher for 2016 UVa STARTALK program. It is definitely the highlight of this summer, and I would regret forever if I had missed it. Within the five weeks, I have gained so much technology skills, teaching techniques and valuable suggestions through training sessions and teaching practicum. I also get to know many great Chinese teachers coming from different states, and I believe that we will develop a long-term friendship. This is a short and intensive program, but surprisingly, it was full of happy laugher and touching tears. Each day that I spent in Charlottesville, I felt inspired, happy and appreciated. Besides professional training, I have also learned about teamwork, growth mindset, caring others and admiring others. I also appreciate all the encouragement and help especially from Dr. Tseng, Henny Chen, my leader teacher and my partners, which give me great confident. I believe that all I have gained from the program are invaluable asset that will make me become a better teacher.
