by Hengjia Liu, Mandarin Teacher- Sandwich High School
It is a great honor for Sandwich Public Schools to be approved as the first Confucius Classroom on Cape Cod.
Confucius was an educator, philosopher, and editor in ancient China. His philosophy still plays an important role in Chinese history. Chinese people always respect Confucius as the first and eternal teacher. Confucius Classroom is authorized and honored by the Chinese government, whose purpose is to support Chinese language and culture teaching around the world so as to increase mutual understanding among young people between China and the world.
By being approved as the Confucius classroom, our students in Sandwich will benefit from the classroom materials, learning resources, and annual funding supported by Chinese government.
