Nyema’s Experience with the Dandelion School

When I was in China,  I visited a school called the Dandelion School. The school was for children of migrant workers. While I was there I taught the children to play a card game similar to BS.

It was a fun experience working with these kids. Not only did I play with them, but they talked about themselves and what it was like at their school. Many of the children lived on campus.

Sometimes it was hard to communicate with the students because not all of them spoke English well, but it was also fun and at times challenging speaking to them in Chinese.

Another thing I liked about this school was the message that they were trying to get across to the students. They wanted the children to build up their self esteem and continue their education. They should go up and beyond, and not quite their education early to get a job.
