Since the outbreak of new coronavirus, Chinese schools have closed classes since mid-March last year (2020), which is an unprecedented record. Students have switched to online learning. Although they have "suspended classes without stopping school" under the epidemic situation, to grasp the essence of students' learning experience, help schools improve online teaching mode and formulate many teaching strategies, during this difficult period, the leaders of all regions of the association have been carrying out various versions of video training, inputting many professional knowledges, guiding how to use high technology to assist classroom teaching! Giving targeted measures to promote the next step of improvement. So far, most schools have mastered the key points skillfully and started to get creative experience! Teachers' confidence in online teaching has also increased greatly. Although we are still suffering from the rising and spreading of the epidemic, we are worried and worried about students' learning adaptation. However, it is gratifying that the pace of our adjustment and the strategies to improve teaching have indeed met the needs of students. Association of Chinese Schools is not only a platform for teachers' union education, but also a source and channel for relevant learning information offices. It is also a database for interdisciplinary and students' autonomous learning. Because of its comprehensive resources, it is also the oldest academic institution in the east of the United States and the only one that can unite Chinese language schools. It has many member schools, and we all work together, facing challenges, gathering strength is the driving force to lay an important foundation! Every year, we will arrange many academic lectures, activities, and competitions on different subjects in the annual meeting, which can show the diversity of students' learning achievements. In addition, it is also a place for friendship and exchange among schools. By using the annual meeting, we can share their experience in learning Chinese, interact with each other and enhance friendship. The teaching of Chinese language has been seamlessly transformed from the physical classroom to the distance teaching on the Internet. It also allows students to study Chinese language without interruption due to disasters. It strives to provide students with high standards and become a place for us to rely on. It contains a very important group social element, and the impact is long-term and unlimited. I would like to express my gratitude to the member schools, the school administration team, and the teachers, as well as to the parents and students for their full cooperation and support. Your continued support to the Chinese School Association is our driving force to promote Chinese language education. I hope you are safe and healthy. Thank you!
