Parents Newsletter heard from Sha Sha, parent of Fang Qiheng’19, who volunteered as a teacher in Suining.
As a volunteer teacher, my son could not fathom what he could bring to local children in Suining. His advice to them was, “the best is yet to come, as long as you study hard” and he encouraged them to write down their dream colleges. Before his departure, he left them his phone number, so children could update him on their progress in reciting English words. The entire experience has given him a sense of achievement for helping those children.
