Cindy Wang is an exchange teacher visiting from China. She joined DeKalb Central on September 26 and will leave on Feb. 5.

During Cindy's stay, she has taught a Chinese class on the language (greetings, family members, numbers, etc.), culture, calligraphy, and paper cutting at DMS. Cindy's favorite student moment was when students applied what they learned.

Cindy also worked with students from JR Watson to teach a Chinese class to 4th and 5th graders every Tues. and Thurs. In the class, students learn to speak their colors, body parts, animals, numbers, and family members in Chinese.

One of Cindy's favorite memories was her birthday! In the morning, Mr. Bennett's class made her birthday cards. While Cindy was in another class her room was filled with balloons. During the day, Cindy received a lot of birthday wishes, cards, and presents. At the end of the day, the staff had a birthday party for her. They had ice cream, sang happy birthday, and she received a ticket to Disney World from the staff! In the evening, Mrs. Helmkamp made a birthday cake with Cindy, and they had another party.
