On Tuesday, July 2, 2019, I woke up like any normal day to teach my VIPKid classes. I stumbled out of bed, found my orange t-shirt, and grabbed my phone. There was a Facebook message there from a teacher that I helped get hired that said “Congratulations!”
It had a screenshot of something with my teacher name on it, Penny JT, and Top Community Contributor. I little voice in the back of my head starts saying, “Could it be?”
VIPKid has a contest twice a year and sends 10 teachers to China. You can win for several categories and I knew I had won for my state for helping other teachers get hired, but I definitely did not win overall.
I ran to my office to see what this really is, start looking at email on my phone and see an email that says, “Congrats, you won a trip to China!”
It was real! I had been chosen by my fellow teachers as a “Top Community Contributor” so I’m heading to China August 14-22!
There will be 10 of us traveling together. Stay tuned here to my blog for all the excitement and fun about my trip to China to meet the VIPKid staff, my students, and to explore Beijing!
