even now, people often forego the word 'disabled' and use 'differently abled' instead. I wonder if there is any end in sight to all this PC mumbo jumbo. It's one thing to be sensitive to others, but constantly having to walk on eggshells trying to figure out what is the most politically correct way to say something is a bit much.
Posted on: Asking for Sick LeaveFebruary 10, 2012, 03:42 PM
At my company (in the US) you can take one sick day off without a doctor's note, but if you are out for more than one day you have to get a doctor's note. We are quite strict about this. No exceptions. If you don't bring a doctor's note after the first day, you won't be allowed to return to work.

Granted the jump from Elementary to Intermediate is difficult, however, if you're saying most Elementary lessons are too easy, you're clearly ready for the challenge. Just jump in, spend a little more time with them, and when you get frustrated, remind yourself that Elementary is too easy for you so this challenge in Intermediate is just what you wanted.
Posted on: Red Envelopes During the Spring FestivalDecember 14, 2011, 03:32 PM
I live in the United States and teach a small group of about 8 Chinese kids once a week. I would like to give them hong bao for Spring Festival. Do you think it would be strange of me (as an American) to do so? Also, what is the appropriate amount $US to put in each envelope?
