Dual Language Immersion Specialist Invited to Teach Workshop in China

Picture of Laticia ThomasLeticia Thomas has earned admiration and respect from teachers and parents for her hard work as a teacher specialist in the Chinese Dual Language Immersion (DLI) program. Now, this talented and compassionate JSD educator is headed to China to share her knowledge and expertise about the American education system and to help train teachers in China who are interested in becoming Chinese Dual Immersion program teachers in the United States. The invitation came in part, from the Chinese Ministry of Education, after word spread about Mrs. Thomas and her unrelenting personal and professional support of Chinese DLI teachers working in the Jordan School District. Mrs. Thomas has been known to help Chinese DLI teachers find safe homes, transportation and has aided in getting them to dentist and doctor appointments, explaining how medical insurance works. Westvale Elementary School Principal, Brenda Anderson will also be a part of the workshop, helping to educate the Chinese teachers about the U.S. education system works.

We are very proud of these distinguished educators for sharing their knowledge and expertise with teachers around the world.
