Classroom Monitor

On my recent trip to China, I learned that a very important person in a school is the classroom monitor. Frequently elected to the job, it is a prized position. Monitors lead the other children in song and exercise. A strong voice and watchful eye is very important.

This past weekend our monitor in the Believe In Me Too school left for her forever family. Now the baby of a family, she will have others to watch over her.

In the US, November is a month of elections. This school was no different. Elected to the position by the staff of the school is Hunter, a bright 6 year old that enjoys singing, reciting poetry and learning English. We hope that the trend continues and he will one day be leaving his position too!
