Sometimes this feels like the dumbest thing I've ever done. I mean, CHINA?!? Really?!?
The other day I was told that no one really understands me, but it is important for me to be there cause they can practice listening skills.
Seriously? *sigh* I thought I came here to be a teacher. But, the sad and frustrating thing's true. The kids don't understand me and most of the teachers don't understand me.
Can I be a good teacher if I can't make them understand?
It is all super frustrating. I wanted to make a difference. And, you know what, maybe I still will make a difference.....just not in the way that I originally hoped for......

You're probably making more of a difference than you know. It seems to me, that's usually the way "making a difference" works.
