10 CIE visiting teachers finished their work in Edmonton and returned to China in summer. In the past few years, most of the teachers were assigned to schools supporting the Mandarin bilingual and beginner programs. The other visiting teachers worked at the CIE providing Chinese language evening classes, Chinese cultural classes in schools and organizing cultural events in the Edmonton community.
Due to COVID-19, the new visiting teachers are expected to arrive from China in 2021. To continue to support the schools in these challenging times, the CIE assigned 4 visiting teachers that usually work at Woodcroft to the Chinese bilingual schools.
