OMG, i can not believe it. i just got an email from my teacher in middle school in china. i always loved and respected him. altho he’s only been my teacher for ONE year, he taught me so much. i gained much confidence and maturity in the one year i spent with him. i tried to find his contact info when i went to china two summers ago, but i couldn’t. because he left the middle school i was in the year i left china and then he moved around too often for any of my classmates to track.
i realize he found my email address from my best friend in china (who was also his student). it’s just completely shocking and joyful to get his email. altho he’s my english teacher, he chose to write me in chinese. he called me “little zhang ying” in the email. hehehe.. now i just need to write him letters in chinese in return. uhoh, my poor chinese typing speed. but i have so much to tell him.
