Chinese Teacher Exchange

Contact(s)

The Beijing Oriental International Education Consulting Service Co., Ltd., Iowa Department of Education, and U.S. Education Without Borders have joined together to offer an exchange opportunity for K-12 teachers in Iowa and the People’s Republic of China (PRC). The program places qualified teachers from Iowa into schools in the PRC and qualified teachers from the PRC into middle and high schools in Iowa. The goal is to establish a program to enhance the quality and scope of the teaching of the Mandarin dialect and Chinese culture in Iowa and the English language and North American culture in the PRC in order to accomplish the following:

  1. Promote relationships between citizens of Iowa and the PRC
  2. Foster knowledge and appreciation of the culture shared by the two communities
  3. Provide students who enroll in these programs with a bilingual and multicultural education that trains them for future personal, academic, and professional success
  4. Provide professional growth opportunities to teachers of Iowa and the PRC
