Orinda, Calif. Mandarin program looking for students this coming Fall

June 10, 2011

The school district in Orinda, Calif (a northern suburb of San Francisco) is  exploring the possibility of starting a Mandarin immersion program in one of its elementary schools. The School Board has opened the discussion but doesn’t necessarily believe there will be  be 20 students who want to start a kindergarten class there in the fall of 2011.

The Board is also concerned it may be  difficult to find a Mandarin teacher with qualified CA credentials.

If you are have a preschool aged child(ren) and interested with the program, or, a qualified Mandarin teacher to teach K-8th grade, looking for a job, please email the parent spearheading the new program, Sufei Liew, at
