This winter things have been a little slow on the blog because I've been getting married in New York and away traveling on my honeymoon. :) Huge life changes, and I'm really excited for this next stage of my personal life.
I've returned to Shanghai now, and in addition to preparing for a Chinese wedding in early April with my new Chinese in-laws and extended family, I'm happy to announce that I'm starting some work in the education consulting sphere on this side of the Pacific.
I've partnered with one of the largest education consulting companies in Asia to prepare a speaking tour through eight cities next month, after the wedding. I'll be going from Beijing to Guangzhou lecturing on the value of a humanities education. If you're in China mid to late April, and you're interested in hearing my talk, please send me a message and I'll give you more information. I'll also post more details as the dates approach.
What I'm looking forward to most is the opportunity to get out on the ground, so to speak, and meet and talk with students and parents from many of China's biggest and diverse cities. It's a great chance to learn about the questions, concerns, and issues Chinese families are facing today when thinking about education both abroad and at home.
See you out there!
