Visiting Chinese Guest Teacher

Chinese Teacher

Kent City School District would like to welcome Xu Zhimin or “Minnie”, who just arrived from the People’s Republic of China. Minnie has earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in English Literature. She will teach Chinese I, II, and III at Roosevelt this year, along with introductory Chinese at Stanton Middle School.

This is Kent’s third year in the Ohio Department of Education’s “Visiting Chinese Guest Teacher” program. The arrangement is by mutual agreement between the Ohio Department of Education and the People’s Republic of China’s own department of education, called the Hanban. Each year, the Hanban sends a different Chinese teacher to us.

She is residing with Kent residents John and Jane Gwinn, who have agreed to host her.
