English Teacher Becomes Relief Worker in China

Rebecca Stormer went to China to teach English. Now she's become something of a relief worker.

Stormer teaches at a little college about 30 miles from the epicenter of the earthquake that authorities there say has taken more than 80,000 lives. The college has taken in about 300 refugees from a nearby village — all children, many orphaned in the quake.

Stormer sent us a poignant little recording of the children saying hello and singing a song in English.
