welcomed a new Chinese Immersion teacher this school year.
Xia Du came to from Minnetonka, Minn. where she was involved in a similar program. She hails from Beijing and is excited to be a part of District 220.
“I heard Barrington is a good school district,” Xia said.
Barbara Rose principal Scott Carlson welcomed Xia in a new teacher orientation in early August.
“We’re growing our program and we’ve added another rockstar teacher,” Carlson said.
Xia got her Bachelor of Arts in Teaching at Capital Normal University in Beijing where she is from. She got her Masters of Arts in Teaching at Morgan State University and completed her student teaching in Portland.
“For those of you who know anything about Chinese Immersion in teaching, that’s the hotbed. That’s where it all got started,” Carlson said. “We’re really thrilled to have her here.”
