Mr.Little¡¯s greatest passion is teaching. He dedicates himself to learning Chinese and becoming a better teacher and friend of China every day. He is constantly thinking of innovative and interesting ways to teach his students. He uses technology to help sick students to attend class from home, or to invite guest speakers from abroad. He loves to incorporate his hobbies into the classroom¡ªoften doing woodworking projects, gardening, drawing, singing, and Taekwondo with the kids. As a result, all of his students love his classes and work hard to improve their English. Mr. Little is never satisfied with how good things are. ¡°We can never imagine how good they can be tomorrow!¡± In his daily effort to improve the way he teaches reading and writing, he began using his personal computer to record is voice reading the grade two phonics books into digital format. Every week for a year, he made a digital phonics book that the students could listen to and learn from at home.
