Grants Awarded to XinXing Teachers

Bei Dou Xing has awarded two Laoshi Grants for the 2013-2014 school year.  Li Laoshi (K) and Niu Laoshi (2nd) each received a $1000 grant to help offset educational costs incurred this year while working towards licensure.  XinXing teachers are required to attain licensure in order to continue teaching here, so we all want to see them succeed!   Support for teacher licensure is paid from the Bei Dou Xing Laoshi Fund which is funded by proceeds from Longevity and Laoshi Book sales (Chinese books with a teacher-recorded CD).
