I have managed to develop a rapport with my colleagues during these three days, which is itself a form of learning community. So, by modeling what a learning community is for teachers, it will help the teachers create one for students. Which is the correct approach. Model the behavior you want to see first, whether for teachers or for students.

The new teacher orientation was very informative and interesting. In the three orientation days, I saw new teachers collaborate with each other to play games, to attend workshops and present mini lessons. We learnt school policies, and curriculum. Everyone seemed happy and became more confident after attending orientation. At the end of orientation, teachers also exhibited talent show. I thought this was a very good chance for all teachers to meet each other and get ready for new semester.
During the exciting three-day orientation, it was such a privilege to interact and engage with teachers from around the world. There was so much relevant, helpful information which inspired me and enhanced my teaching. Everyone involved made me feel comfortable, which was really appreciated by me and many others as some were understandably nervous.
我用三個關鍵詞來形容這幾天的新教師培訓: fruitful, supportive, mutual learning。
Mutual learning: 全體新老師們來自于不同的背景，短短幾日，我們通過日常交流，說課展示和才藝表演中增進了彼此了解，相互學習，很過瘾。

For me, the informative introduction session is super useful as I am completely new to IB curriculum or even high school teaching. I found the experienced teaching staff here and my peer new teachers are all very supportive and hospitable. A good way to start a new chapter of my life！
