Our Shape and Say story is “Queenie to the Rescue.” 

“Nobody’s Watching” is the CIK story, focusing on doing what is right whether or not supervised. 

The interns from China have begun teaching “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” in their language and also the colors. 

We are enjoying getting to know our teacher interns: Mali, Liqun and Rui. Here is a brief greeting and introduction from each of them: 

Hello. My name is He Liqun and my English name is Ivy. I'm a junior student in Southwest University, Chongqing, China. My major is English Education. I come from Gansu province in northwest China, which reaches into the geographic center of the country. The capital of Gansu is Lan-chou, on the south bank of our Mother River Huang Ho (Yellow River).

In my spare time, I like doing sports, such as playing badminton, playing ping-pong and running. What's more, I like dancing, especially national dance of China. Furthermore, reading is interesting and educational.

After graduation, I plan to be an English teacher in high school at my hometown. At the same time, I want to continue my education.
