My first day as a Tsinghua teacher, I was very nervous. Once I started speaking in front of the students, I felt a little better. At first, the students were very shy, and none of them spoke up. I eventually started breaking the ice, with a little introduction of myself. The Chinese students are very respectful, obedient, and sweet. This week has been a great experience. I cannot wait to see what the next two weeks have in store.
