BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - A Bronxville High School teacher recently brought a taste of Chinese culture back home after being chosen as part of an American delegation that took a tour through China.

Bronxville High School curriculum leader Denise Flood was among nearly 250 teachers, administrators and educational leaders from across the country that were chosen as part of the College Board’s 2016 Chinese Bridge Delegation, which included tours of Asian schools, educational workshops and cultural activities.

During the trip, Flood visited schools in Beijing and Shandong, where they met with local educators, observed Chinese classrooms in person and interacted with students. For their part, the American contingent answered questions from students and teachers about the differences between the Chinese and American schools system.

The College Board also hosted a presentation with Chinese ministers of education and Hanban a public institution that promotes the Chinese language internationally. In between stops, Flood also took the time to make visits at the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.

“This was a life-changing experience,” Flood said. “I learned a great deal about the Chinese language program and culture of China. The people of China have a deep connection to their ancient roots and this is evident in their daily customs and traditions and in their educational system.”
