We Teach in China

Thanks to New City School’s summer sabbatical opportunities, 4/5s teacher, DeAnn Pomatto, and 6th grade teacher, Linda Churchwell-Varga, spent 26 days in China this past summer touring and teaching.  They participated in a program called We Teach in China which is organized through the Department of Education of the Jiangsu Province.

“At We Teach in China, our goal is to promote cultural awareness through educational exchange. We provide quality teachers to help the Chinese teachers improve their conversational English skills and assist them with methods of teaching. Our teachers experience China up close and personal and learn about the everyday life of the Chinese in a safely guided environment. In addition, our teachers are provided tours of Nanjing and local cities.”
