About the China Exchange Initiative

As part of the U.S. - China Exchange Initiative, Dr. Saylor was one of nine administrators from Pennsylvania that traveled to China in April 2011. Dr. Saylor's partner administrator, Ms. Zhao Hong, visited the United States and spent time in the Wilson School District in the fall of 2010. The goal of the budding friendship and partnership between the two educational systems is to provide opportunity for collaborative learning experiences for students from both countries and to enhance the instructional practice of teachers from both educational systems. To share Dr. Saylor's experiences in China, read the posts below.

Anticipation builds...

Two weeks from Wednesday and we'll be on our way!  I'm excited about the prospect of visiting with my colleague in China - exploring her country, learning about her education system, and spending time in her school talking with her faculty and students, AND sharing it all with you.  The MOU has been translated, the e-tickets are printed, and the passport with visa is in hand.  Now it's just tackling the packing...    If I can fit 3 week's worth of clothes, the gifts for their school from our district, and all the tech hardware into one carry-on suitcase and a backpack - well, hey, let's just say anything is possible!  :-)
