Let the Learning Begin!
I experienced the same thrill of excitement today during the “opening ceremony” of the SABEH summer teacher training workshop as I did two years ago when I first visited Fuzhou, China. Looking around the auditorium at hundreds of Chinese teachers’ eager to begin their training, I was overwhelmed by an intense feeling of pride at being one of the fifteen American educators who had just travelled across the world for this incredible opportunity. In addition to sharing American pedagogy with Chinese teachers, I am looking forward to learning more about of the Chinese culture while continuing SABEH’s legacy of building bridges between our two cultures through education. I know that I will return to the United States enriched by the experience!
