You Want Us to Do What Now?

It was shared in our teacher group last night that there was an announcement from the Chief Executive. There were a few things that were announced. The first thing had to do with the mandatory testing. It looks like they want every person in Hong Kong to get tested three […]

Now It’s Our Turn…
