Xiangfen Li, Roberson’s Chinese teacher, will be moving back to China June 19 after four years of teaching in Asheville. Her Chinese IV class decided to throw a surprise going away party to thank her for teaching them all these years.
Li has learned a lot about the work ethic and school system of America through her teaching. Her students expressed so much passion and individuality through their work and she has really enjoyed watching them grow through her course.
The Chinese class organized a distraction with several staff members of the Golden Fleece so they would have time to set up the party, which included Chinese dishes and a card. Li was overwhelmed with emotion and expressed her thanks to each individual student.
