Since 2009, CEC has offered teachers the opportunity to teach in China during their summer break. Teachers have an amazing experience and can even receive points for their professional growth plan. Most recently, 30 teachers from Indiana taught for two weeks in three Chinese cities: Hangzhou, Huzhou, and Guangzhou. Two of the schools were elementary schools and the other was a middle school. When surveyed our teachers gave the experience a 4.8 out of 5 stars.
The number and location of opportunities for teachers to teach during the summer in China varies from year to year. CEC normally posts application materials in January for travel and teaching during the following summer. Keep your eye on our website for these limited openings when they appear.

This summer, 2020, CEC is sending a group of teachers to Hangzhou to teach a STEM/STEAM camp. Teachers from all parts of the state, from Munster to Evansville, and from Elkhart County to Madison. Each school will have 300 elementary and middle school students with 12 American teachers and 12 bi-lingual Chinese teachers per class of 25.
"My time in China truly changed my life. The experience has since shapen my personal and professional outlook. I was challenged, inspired, and empowered to become a better person and a better educator."
During the summer of 2020, most of those teachers selected to participate will be assigned to a middle or elementary school in Zhejiang, Indiana’s sister state in China, Zhejiang Province. Placements also include Qingdao and Guangzhou. The focus at our two-week summer camp sessions is STEM/STEAM.
Sessions will occur between July 6-July 24, 2020. (These dates are still tentative.) Some teachers may also be asked to provide professional development training to Chinese educators. Teachers may choose to participate in trip extensions to Hangzhou, Beijing, or Shanghai. None of these extensions may be combined.
