Story of King of Kids
Craig Richard Fromel

My name is Craig Richard Fromel, from the US. To be frank, I never imagined I'd be a teacher, let alone be an English teacher in a city in western China.
But now I like my job, teaching English at kindergartens and primary schools in Chengdu. Now they call me the "King of Kids", though I knew very little to get along with kids at the beginning.

Gradually I learned how to be a good teacher, with the help of local teachers and friends, and I have developed trust and friendship with my kids. I play games and do sports exercise with my pupils and they teach me Sichuan dialect, and that gives me a great pleasure and fulfillment.

Walking in the city, I can hear the soft, melodious Sichuan dialect, smell the fragrance of Hotpot. I notice the harmonious coexistence of tradition and the fashionable. I love the city, and I love my kids. I will probably live here forever.
