The following includes excerpts from the News Release regarding this event:
On May 24, 2018, Kelli Kramer, a Canadian teacher at Maple Leaf International School – Dalian, received the “Person of the Year for International Teachers in China Award” during an event organized by the China State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs.
Kelli is not only the first Maple Leaf teacher to win this distinguished award, but she is also the first K-12 international teacher in China to receive it, as the other recipients have all been university instructors.
Ms. Kelli Kramer is a model teacher and leader. She is one of over 400 teachers in China employed by Maple Leaf Educational Systems, who provide instruction and guidance to prepare their students for a successful future in an international world. Kelli has also communicated a strong and positive message to surrounding communities. She has done so by involving teachers and students in multiple charity fund-raising events, to connect communities inside and outside the school. Through her thoughtfulness and kindness, Kelli has promoted public welfare in China and made great contributions to her “second home”. Several less-privileged communities have been impacted by her compassion and generosity.
Join us in congratulating Kelli for her tireless and selfless contributions and gracious example.
