WORDS FROM CONNIE WIECK
I have been teaching English in mainland China for 10 years, at small teachers colleges in the country. I work through the Amity Foundation, a Chinese NGO. Amity was founded in 1985 by Chinese Christians wishing to extend Gods love to others through social service projects. I work in the education division as an overseas English language teacher at numerous struggling rural colleges.
My current placement with Amity brings me to Longzhou, a river town where I am beginning a new life near the Vietnam border. I am currently the only foreign language teacher at our small 3-year school, Guangxi Normal University for Nationalities.
