Xin Fuxue, in my mind, is a delightful school where all teachers and children are attracted by magic. And this so-called enchantment is the sincere love from the bottom of our heart, making XFA loving, caring and safe.
Both Chinese and foreign teachers are an indispensable piece of our school. Students trust them and they all contribute to making XFA young learners warm and happy. Chinese and foreign teachers are passionate about education, and the educational content they create for students. It is these bits and pieces of work that warms the heart of every child and every faculty member.
Foreign teachers collaborate with Chinese teachers daily at XFA.
Foreign teachers account for nearly 30% of the total teaching staff and are mainly from America and European countries in the elementary and middle school of XFA. They create an immersive English learning environment for our young learners. At XFA, each class is equipped with both foreign and Chinese homeroom teachers. At the elementary level, 50% of the subjects are taught by foreign teachers. This allows foreign teachers to have more time to fully impact a child’s learning and English fluency. Foreign teachers not only teach students the knowledge to improve their language skills, but also integrate their unique culture and teaching methods into lessons. Students can, therefore, experience the differences and integration of Chinese and western cultures and switch between different thinking and communication methods.
The leader of the foreign teacher team is XFA’s foreign principal, Mr. Gary Dimitratos. Sometimes he’s a pillar of moral education, sometimes he becomes a strict principal, and sometimes he is the coolest guitar player on the stage!
Foreign teachers assume the responsibility of homeroom teachers and teaching all English subjects in our elementary program. As an instructor, teachers guide students to think and to explore the unknown space, human body, animals, etc. They teach students valuable content, critical thinking and communicate in English. As a participant in class, teachers cooperate with students in making mind maps or posters. As the leader of the children's expedition team, teachers lead students to observe insects and birds outdoors. As a friend, foreign teachers are surrounded by cute children, playing and chasing, and enjoy the fun of childhood. As the guardian, they work with Chinese homeroom teachers to help kids develop good habits and to create a safe environment for them.
On the playground or during activities, you can always see foreign teachers holding mobile phones and taking photos of their children. They focus on and appreciate the children, smiling and caring. A child’s growth is a foreign teacher's greatest motivation and reason for persistence.
XFA foreign middle school teachers assume the responsibility of homeroom teachers and teaching a single subject. Middle school learning contains higher requirements for children's language learning and academic performance and teachers' academic ability. Art teachers teach children spatial composition and how to sketch what they see using more angles and more delicate brushes. P.E. teachers guide students in doing professional physical training and learning basic knowledge about professional sports, in which process students find love for sports and improve language ability. In English, mathematics, sociology, and natural sciences, Economics and other subjects, foreign teachers use their professional academic ability to teach children the knowledge, teach them how to think, explore and complete teamwork as well as how to expand their knowledge. We aim to train them to be true learners and talents with international vision and international communication skills.
At XFA, we cherish our Chinese and foreign teachers as an indispensable part of our big family! We respect diversified cultures, backgrounds, nationalities, and habits. Yes, indeed we are mixing and integrating, the reason for which is that we love this school and every child here.
