The ELT May team is here to hang out, support, entertain, encourage, love... the list goes on and on. It has been awesome seeing other American faces, and getting to know these people. Learning about their lives and their stories has been very encouraging. I even met a girl, who promises to my friend when I am back in America. I already emailed her husband to tell him we are friends.
They were on our campus today and our students were so excited.
They played games with them, danced with them, and talked with them.

We never get this many students to come hang out with us! Must have been the 15 other Americans that lured them away from their books.
At night there was a performance. We had been telling students and had a sign made, and apparently Mr. Yu was making students attend.
Because my goodness, those students rolled out! Over 500 students. Wow.
The school officials were even in attendance and loving it just as much as the students!
There was singing
I guarantee the songs that were sung tonight will be downloaded by the weekend.
My new balloon making friend Samantha was there making some crazy balloon figures. She learned on YouTube. She performs at b-day parties. I wish she would have been at mine. Amazing.
Of course games were involved...
Ones that involved a lifesaver being passed by toothpick via mouth. Kylie and I had to demonstrate. I didn't want to kiss her in front of 500 students. I didn't want to kiss her at all.
The boys were extra careful they REALLY didn't want to almost kiss each other.
There were skits.
The "Empty Heads" performed.
There was a skit about a fly.
And a skit about how some old guy died.
And the last song of the evening was all for the students. Because of their love for Titanic, K Money sang My Heart Will Go On, remix style. It was a hit. It made such a splash even this lady
One of the school VERY high up ladies was dancing around.
I love dancing with the Chinese.
After 2 hours of pure crazy madness we had to get out of that packed, hot room.
But not without getting autographs from the stars.
Okay, maybe it was just their email addresses, but still. They were rockstars tonight.
Where else do you get to do this? I love my job.
