Hi Weena,
What a great weblog you've created! I'm so impressed. I enjoyed reading about your school and your teaching, and the comments from others. It seems like a long time ago that we were in Hawaii. What a wonderful experience it was for me. I'm back to school now with my 7th and 8th graders and it's like we never left.
I'll check your weblog again soon.

Aloha Susan,

It's been great to hear from you, thank you very much for your time visiting my infancy blog.
Next month, we're having a half year break and I expect to add some more contents on it.
Haven't you tried constructing one for yourself and your students to share matters yet?
I need time to write some exam papers for them next week, though.
Please feel free to suggest anything on here, okay?
Best wiishes,
