The other day we held a culture fair at my school. A teacher from my school invited me to set up a booth. I decided to showcase Chinese paper cutting. I think I prepared very well.

On the day of the fair a lot of teachers and students showed interest in my booth! I taught them how to make “double-happiness” using red paper. They tried cutting and had a great time. I am very happy and honored that so many people found my display interesting.

While at the fair I also had a chance to enjoy different cultures and foods. I tasted many different delicious things.

U.S.-China Teachers Exchange Program

U.S.-China Teachers Exchange Program

Between 1996 and 2014, the U.S.-China Teachers Exchange Program, established with funding from the Freeman Foundation, sent American K-12 teachers to China and brought Chinese secondary school teachers to the United States. Since the program began, 116 American teachers taught in Chinese secondary schools, and 332 Chinese teachers taught in American elementary, middle, and high schools. The Chinese teachers typically spent a school year teaching Chinese language and culture or English as a second language in American schools across the country.
