优秀教师Amity年度分享

I have been working with Ivy Education for just about 2 years.  Prior to this I was a science teacher in US schools for about 10 years.  I worked primarily with students in grades 6-12.  There is simply nothing better than being an Ivy Education teacher! The simple truth is that I love my students and families, and I love teaching. I am truly honored to have been nominated for teacher of the year.


我已经在瑞藤教育工作了大约2年。在此之前,我在美国学校做了10年的科学老师。我主要教6-12年级的学生。没有什么比成为瑞藤老师更好的了!单纯从事实来说,我爱我的学生和家庭,我爱教学。我真的很荣幸被提名为年度优秀教师候选人。


 The one-on-one nature of Ivy classes allows me to develop fantastic relationships with my students.  Many of my Ivy students are in grades 6-9.  Sometimes before joining me in class my students have had the best days, sometimes they have had the worst days.  That’s ok!  I know I am a history and science teacher, but my students and I often end up discussing grades, friendships, music, movies, travel, after school activities or even future plans.  I love that my students let me in to their worlds.  I feel like I can better support them when they do.  I am also able to personalize lessons based on what I know about each student.  I won’t share names, but I have literally had students cry with me in class.  Sometimes they just need a comfortable place to open up and I am so happy that they feel comfortable with me.  


瑞藤一对一的课程特色让我和学生建立了良好的关系。我瑞藤的学生大都在6-9年级。在和我一起上课之前,我的学生有的度过了最美好的一天,也有的经历了最糟糕的一天。这都没有关系!我虽然是一名历史和科学老师,但我和我的学生经常会讨论成绩、友情、音乐、电影、旅行、课外活动甚至是未来计划。我喜欢我的学生让我进入他们的世界。我觉得当他们这样做的时候,我可以更好地支持他们。我也能根据我对每个学生的了解开展个性化课程。我不想透露名字,但我确实和学生在课堂上一起痛哭过。有时他们只是需要一个舒适的地方敞开心扉,我很高兴他们和我在一起感到很舒服。


I have also spent countless hours laughing with my students.  It doesn’t matter if I am teaching history or science or reading a novel, I love making learning fun.  We all learn more naturally when we are relaxed and having fun.  I have had some of the most fun during my webinar classes.  I love the one-on-one nature of Ivy, but the webinars are just so much fun for me as a teacher too.  My webinar students are engaged and always have tons of great questions!   If you have ever attended one of my webinars, you know that I never want them to end. 


我和我的学生度过了无数个欢笑时光。不管是教历史、科学还是读小说,我都喜欢让学习变得有趣。当我们放松和享受的时候,我们都能更加自然而然地学习。在我的瑞藤大课上,我享受了最大的乐趣。我喜欢瑞藤一对一的教学方式,作为一名老师,瑞藤大课(读书慧时光)对我来说也非常有趣。大课上,学生们都很投入,并且总是有很多很棒的问题!如果你参加过我的瑞藤大课(读书慧时光),你就会知道我多希望它们永远不要结束。


As many of you know, a few months ago I was diagnosed with COVID.  I was fortunately able to stay home and out of the hospital but I was extremely sick for many months.  My students and families were patient and forgiving when I needed to reschedule classes and they sent me well-wishes nonstop.  On my worst days, I could always count on one of my students sending me a message or a silly story.  This meant so much to me during my recovery.


你们很多人都知道,几个月前我被诊断出患有新冠(COVID)。幸运的是,我可以呆在家里,不去医院,但我病得很重,病了好几个月。当我需要重新安排课程时,我的学生和他们的家人们都对我都很耐心和宽容,他们不停地给我送上祝福。在我最糟糕的日子里,我总是期待有学生给我发信息或分享一个好笑的故事。这对我的康复非常重要。

 

Learning from my students is one of the best parts of working as an Ivy teacher.  I once held class with a student on Chinese New Year.  Instead of cancelling class, the student and her family invited me to dinner with them.  Their iPad was placed on their family dinner table and throughout the meal my student and her family asked and answered questions.  I had never experienced this holiday before and learned so much from that one class.  It was such an honor to be invited and welcomed so warmly.  Ivy student families are simply the best!  


在瑞藤工作中最好的部分之一是我可以向我的学生学习。我曾经和一个学生在春节(除夕)当天上课。这位学生和她的家人没有取消课程,而是邀请我和他们共进晚餐。他们把iPad放在家里的餐桌上,整个用餐过程中,我的学生和她的家人不断地提问和回答问题。我从来没有经历过这个节日,从那节课上我学到了很多。受到如此热烈的邀请和欢迎真是莫大的荣幸。瑞藤的学生和家人们是最好的!

 

My students all know how much I love to travel; thus, they frequently share their own travel pictures with me.  I have not personally been to China, yet through my students I have seen the Great Wall of China, Olympic Park in Shanghai, the beaches of Hainan and the light show in Shenzhen.  The country and people of China are truly amazing.  I truly can’t wait to visit someday!  I feel like I have gotten to know the smallest piece of China through my students and I love sharing this with the people in my life here.


我的学生都知道我有多喜欢旅行;因此,他们经常和我分享自己的旅行照片。我没有亲自去过中国,但通过我的学生,我看到了中国的长城,上海的奥林匹克公园,海南的海滩和深圳的灯光秀。中国这个国家和人民真的很棒。我真的等不及哪天亲自去看看了!我感觉我已经通过我的学生了解了中国最小的一部分,我喜欢与我身边的人分享这些。


I have a few students that I have been working with for well over a year.  When we first started, two of these long-term students were very shy and unable to have a complete conversations in English.  However, just one year later one of these students recently finished a 400-page novel completely in English and another student has moved up 2 grade levels in her curriculum this year alone.  These once shy students now love talking in English!  Being a small part of this amazing growth is such an honor.  I am so very proud of all my students.  After long days at school and evenings of homework, my students come to our classes ready to learn and work hard.  Through their hard work they are becoming more and more fluent every day!  


有几个学生和我一起学习了一年多。最开始的时候,其中有2个学生非常害羞,无法用英语进行完整的对话。然而,仅仅一年之后,其中一名学生就完成了一本400页的全英文小说,另一名学生仅在今年就在课程上提高了2个年级等级。这些曾经害羞的学生现在喜欢用英语交谈!能成为他们惊人进步助力的一小部分是如此荣耀。我为我所有的学生感到骄傲。在学校度过了漫长一天的学习并完成晚上的家庭作业之后,我的学生来到我们的课堂准备好学习并努力付出。通过他们的努力,他们的英语一天天会变得更加流利!


Clearly, being an Ivy teacher brings me so much joy.  I simply cannot imagine doing anything other than this.  Thank you for the nomination and for taking the time to read this!


显然,成为瑞藤的老师给我带来了很多欢乐。我简直无法想象还有什么比这更快乐的事情。感谢你的提名并花时间阅读我的文章!
