Teacher Margie Duwe ’00 participates in exchange program with school in China

Margie Duwe is a teacher at St. Mary School in Bloomington, in southern Wisconsin. In an article that appeared in the Madison Catholic Herald, the principal of St. Mary School, Julie Zenz, wrote about the exchange program St. Mary’s has had since 2012 with Shijiazhuang No. 40 Middle School in China. Margie traveled to the partner school and spent four weeks teaching science to the students (nearly 1,000 of them in classes averaging 55 students!) while three teachers from China came to teach science and reading at St. Mary’s.

Read about the exchange program, Margie’s experiences and observations, and the impact that visiting students and teachers have had on both schools.
