Teachers Looking For Host Families
If you would like to learn first-hand about the Chinese culture, consider sharing your daily life with a teacher from our sister school in Beijing and perhaps learn how to cook a few authentic dishes. Wayland?s China Exchange Program is looking for two families to host two female teachers for eight weeks this fall, from approximately September 1 to November 1. Host families, with or without school age children, should be able to provide a private bedroom for the teacher, but shared bathrooms are fine. The Program only asks that families be themselves and treat the teachers as part of the family. To learn more or to speak with a former host family about their experience, please contact Donna Fong, donna_fong@wayland.k12.ma.us
