Bob Weiman's US-China Professional Exchange Tour

Thanks to an APT Summer Study Grant and SSSAS funds for professional growth and development, I will be traveling to China from June 16-June 30 with a group of independent school administrators from across the nation;  the trip is being organized and sponsored by Independent Education and the Elementary School Heads Association.  We will be visiting five cities (Beijing, Xian, Shanghai, Chongqing, and Hong Kong) during the two-week trip.  In each city we will explore Chinese historical and cultural sites, visit schools, and meet with teachers, school administrators, and educational officials from the government.  As part of our school's focus on global awareness and education, my goal is to bring back information and develop relationships with Chinese teachers and schools that will help move this effort forward schoolwide.

Please join me on this journey through our Saints Go Global blog.

This is very exciting, Bob! I look forward to hearing about your impressions. I asked my friend in Shanghai about magic stores in China and she did not have any suggestions for you. Hopefully you will have some free time to track down those magic shops. Have a wonderful trip!
