Housekeeping 2

Hi there,

This is a personal house-keeping note, for me. I’m organizing the 60 blogs I wrote so far.

For now, as of December 2018, I’m just sharing thoughts on parents, teachers, new schools, and “other.” See below. It’s mostly for my own use, with a few friends reading too.

Once I find the right partner with whom to start a school in China, I’ll shift to telling that story.

Best wishes,
