A Cutting Edge of Education in China and Beyond!

Perfect timing! My book is on track to be finished very soon and I have just heard from my “boss” in China. I’m not sure if I have shared this on WordPress or not, but I have been working with an educator in China, Dr. John Walsh, writing books for Kindergarten children who are learning English. The books have been on hold for various reasons but we are now back on track! Right now John is stuck in Uganda and may not be able to get back into China until April because of the coronavirus, but thanks to technology, that shouldn’t stop us!

Dr. John Walsh and John Heavey are partners in a business, Reload Academy, in Ireland. John Walsh came to China to work in the school teaching children English. He met his soon-to-be wife Deborah, who is from Uganda, in China and they will be married in her country in May. Separate from his job in the school, John has had a dream of creating books from kindergarten on up to help children learn words in English. His very long term goal is to extend this process to other languages as well. My job is to create stories using these 100 words you see the kids reciting. The books are set in a Magic Kindergarten so it’s really been fun! It will increase in difficulty, of course, as we move up to higher levels. I’m sure I will wear out long before his dream is completed, but I’ll keep working with him as long as he will have me and I still have all my mental faculties!

This endeavor sounds awesome and fearsome at the same time. I love challenges and this is so very exciting to be a part of such an innovative project. Wish us luck!

And the Beat Goes On….

I must need my head examined. I am now rebuilding my real estate business in the Wake Forest, NC area, as if writing wasn’t enough! I got my license back in 2015 and worked in Cary, NC until we moved to Wake Forest. Now I’m trying to kick-start it here. Retirement just doesn’t seem to be in my word-log. I am accustomed to biting off more than I can chew, but I didn’t think I would still be doing it at this point in my life, too! In any case, if you want to, or you know of anyone who wants to, relocate, I am here to tell you that North Carolina is a fantastic place to live, and particularly, in this area. Perfect weather, reasonably close proximity to beaches and mountains alike, and you still get to enjoy all four seasons, although for snow-lovers, maybe not so much. We are getting gypped this year on the white stuff. Please check out my new page, and, at the same time, you can check out my old page, too! Please Like and Follow both! Yup, I definitely need my head examined.
