Connie’s New Address in Guangxi!

             I’ve received quite a few notes asking what is my new address in Guangxi.  Many of you have expressed a desire to send things on my wish list but have had no place as yet to send them. 
             Here you are, and I’ll be sure to include the address in every blog entry just in case you can’t find it easily enough.
           Connie Wieck
             Guangxi Normal University for Nationalities
             125 Dushan Road
              Longzhou County, Chongzuo City
              Guangxi  532400
              P.R. of China
           As a reminder, I am helping add books to an English Language Center, located on the 7th floor of the library building I’ve been told.  I’m also a big fan of educational encouragement stickers (Good, well-done, excellent), which cannot be found anywhere in China.  I use these as rewards on essays, prizes, gifts to teachers I visit in grade school, and as a free-for-all for my Chinese English teacher colleagues.  By sharing with my colleagues, I am no longer considered the high and mighty foreigner who has all the goodies to distribute.  Your sticker gifts help me work in partnership with my Chinese co-workers, not in competition with them.   I consider this one of the best contributions you could make to my work as a teacher and a Christian here in China so send as many as you want!
          I’ve also been starting up my collection of Christmas holiday pencils to give to each student in December for our Christmas festivities.  I usually need around 400 of these.  They should be seasonal, meaning sayings such as "Merry Christmas" on them or decorated with snowflakes, Christmas trees, snowmen and so forth.  The glittery ones are usually the most coveted.  Such pencils are usually sold in bulk at educational stores or have to be ordered via educational on-line companies.  
         If you need some suggestions, have questions or comments, just email!   I’m always eager and grateful to help you out, especially as I’m the recipient of all the cool goodies you always send my way.
         Thank you for thinking of me and, as always, Ping An (peace)!

About connieinchina

I have been in the Asia region for 30 years as an English language teacher. 28 of those have been spent with the Amity Foundation, a Chinese NGO that works in all areas of development for the Chinese people. Amity teachers are placed at small colleges throughout China as instructors of English language majors in the education field. In other words, my students will one day be English teachers themselves in their small villages or towns once they graduate. Currently, this is my 13th year in Luzhou Vocational and Technical College. The college is located in Luzhou city (loo-joe), Sichuan Province, a metropolis of 5 million people located next to the Yangtze River .
