Funny teaching moment?
I was teaching to a group of Chinese students and we were talking about intonations of numbers. We were counting to ten in Mandarin Chinese where I messed up the intonation of ten and said poop instead. Needless to say the students burst into laughter and I did as well once they schooled me.
Favorite self care strategy?
Cup of tea, gratitudes, pulling a tarot card, and sparking a conversation with the Divine on paper.
