Embracing diversity in Yiwu as foreign educators

2023/08/14 16:47

Rose Mary Nash from the United States is a foreign teacher at Soong Ching Ling Kindergarten in Yiwu, Zhejiang province.

In Rose's view, Yiwu is an exceptionally inclusive city, a unique charm that led her to choose it as her long-term home. Beyond making friends from various countries and regions, Rose also found her significant other here.

As an educator, she aims to bring this atmosphere into her classroom, understanding and respecting differences among students and encouraging them to embrace diverse viewpoints.

Adam James Osborne-Smith from New Zealand currently serves as a foreign teacher at Yiwu Qunxing International School.

Adam, who previously worked in the finance industry, chose to start teaching English to children. Being around children changed his outlook on life.

The school has many foreign students, and both local and international students coexist harmoniously. Their self-guided weekend English practice debates astound Adam.

But what particularly sets Yiwu apart for Adam is the school's fusion of Eastern and Western education to cater to the diverse student body. This approach not only establishes a strong foundation but also promotes inclusivity and free expression.
