Through more than 2 months of careful planning, seamless coordination, hard work and ordered execution, Michael Chen 大学助学金中心- 华夏中文学校 2013教学研讨会暨教师年会 成功举行! Once again, we accomplished what we had promised. We had the honor to host around 300 registered attendees, 6 invited speakers, 11 HX speakers over more than 15 topics covering Chinese culture, teaching methodology and skills, textbook selection and preparation, Chinese-learning via internet, balanced professionalism and volunteerism in managing HX Chinese schools, etc. Branch principals and deans were also provided with role-specific forums to exchange views and share experiences. This conference has emerged as one of the signature events of our HX community that attracted the attention of some federal, state and local government officials. The following links direct you to the appraisal of the event by the popular media and capture the memorable moments of the two-day event：
In echoing the applause from the audience in our closing ceremony, the organization committee would like to express its sincere appreciation to all serving the event. First, the 2013-2014 HX board is credited for the generous approval of the needed spending. Specially thanks are to the branch principals and staff members for their full support and coordination in speech submission, in-time registration, prompt delivery of paychecks and a steady supply of volunteers. The committee would never accomplish its mission without the two-month plus tireless joined work by its dedicated members: Jaclyn Lee, 李盛京, 李晓京，林 合, 林树民，刘 建，吕敏伟，王 宏，王 坚, 阎 明，叶 森，张长春 and 张 逊. The committee has also received tremendous help from other volunteer contributors, 高歌, 郝若飞, 李久耀，马剑涛，沈晓星，吴庆立，姚明, etc. Its gratitude is further extended to the following regional coordinators of 2013 HX 教学部 for their efforts in collecting and compiling the presentation and forum materials and hosting the panel discussions: 杜娟, 刘燕云, 曾专, 张悦, 仲爱梅 and 周英.
Such as in all its others activities, our华夏中文学校, as a non-profit organization, has always been in debt to the generous support from all branches, teachers, parents and various business partners. The 2013 HX Teachers Conference would definitely be of a lesser scale without the generous sponsorship from Michael Chen大学助学金中心 (the title sponsor), Metlife (a platinum sponsor), 南海图书 (gold sponsor), and other sponsors.
Last but not the least, our sincere gratitude to all those whose names may have missed our attention but whose help had always been available whenever needed.
Thank you all!
