Twenty-five teachers from Beijing National Day School in China visited Chatham High School on Friday. The teachers split into five groups to observe classes throughout the day in order to experience a typical day at an American high school.

“(The teachers’) humor in classes, passion for teaching, and devotion to kids are greatly touching and inspire us," Shi Shaoxiang, a teacher from the Beijing Day School, said. "No matter which class we attended, teachers and students alike gave us the smiling hello and welcome.

"And students' total concentration, intensive participation, self discipline and critical thinking are the most moving acts. Special thanks also go to these lovely kids.”

The CHS Chinese Club hosted the visitors at lunch and practiced their Chinese language skills.
