Commencement Speech at Southern Connecticut Chinese School.

On Mother’s Day this year I was honored to give the Commencement speech at the Southern Connecticut Chinese School in New Haven. English, Spanish and Mandarin are considered by many to be the trifecta of key languages needed by workers today. They are the three most commonly spoken languages in the world. 2015SCCSGraduationCakeCutting 2015SCCSGraduationDr.Howe 11219410_10153218581950365_2997689295859745236_n 11203183_10153218581995365_4076761902622031767_n 10410822_10153218638000365_2547694896550356613_n 11258202_10153218638150365_3670008451770167717_n

With Dr. Henan Cheng, Deputy Principal of the Southern Connecticut Chinese School located at Southern Connecticut State University. Dr. Cheng is also Associate Director, Center on Chinese Education, Adjunct Faculty, Department of International and Transcultural Studies at Teachers College, Columbia University.

The Southern Connecticut Chinese School (SCCS) is devoted to Chinese language teaching. Established in 1995, with the help from the Calvary Baptist Church at New Haven and through years of the volunteered efforts of parents and a group of dedicated, motivated teachers, the School has evolved from a small after-school class with one teacher and several students to a non-profit educational institution of over 500 students from 40 towns in the Greater New Haven area.
