Mrs. Loser
 
“Class.”
Stiletto heels on the tiled floor. Click-clack, click-clack to the front of the room.
A full class rustles with anticipation. Whispers flit through the room like bats in a cave.

Is she the new teacher?

What do we… 

What happened to…

I don’t know

She seems…
 
“Attention.”
The class falls quiet like she’s pressed the [...]

A Lesson in Music Theory
 
i. adagio: a slow tempo

A Golden Lesson

April, 2018
No comments 94 views

A school day at Peide School starts pretty loudly. Yet this loudness is in order and rhythmic: little boys and girls reading aloud Chinese classic poetry and articles, just like those children in traditional Chinese schools of yore.
