Four Higley Unified School District teachers took their skills to China and spent two weeks instructing students in Shijiazhuang, China a this past summer.

The teachers – Kathy Kalinke from Power Ranch Elementary and Haleigh Rohner, Beth Knudsvig, and Brennan Hallock from Sossaman Middle School – taught students various subjects at a summer camp in Shijiazhuang, China.

Higley’s teachers taught two week-long sessions to around 900 Chinese students.

Ms. Kalinke taught physical education and Mr. Hallock taught music, while Mrs. Knudsvig taught English and Mrs. Rohner taught science. Two camp sessions ran in July. The four teachers who took their skills to China taught together in a group and rotated through the four classes they taught.

The Higley teachers made weekend excursions to Xi’An and Beijing. They even got an opportunity to visit the Great Wall in Beijing.

Each teacher was so grateful for the experiences they had getting to teach students on the other side of the world.
