The San Antonio ISD World Languages teachers from Longfellow and Tafolla Middle Schools took a group of students on a Learning Expedition to the Institute of Texan Cultures. While there, students experienced firsthand the annual celebration of the Chinese New Year. They were also able to experience examples of the many Asian cultures that have influenced the development of Texas.
One of the highlights of the day was a performance given by Longfellow students enrolled in the Chinese Mandarin class under the leadership of SAISD Chinese teacher Dr. Liang Ward. This group was invited by the Confucius Institute at UTSA to perform and dance for the event.
We are proud of our SAISD World Languages Program, teachers, and students’ stellar performance.
