Thirty-one student teachers from a Korean study-abroad program through La Sierra University visited the Corona-Norco Unified School District Wednesday, August 1, to observe classrooms and hear from District administrators.

The students met with CNUSD Deputy Superintendent Dr. Robert Taylor, Assistant Superintendent Dr. David Hansen, and nine other Human Resources and Educational Services administrators. The group visited Harada, Barton, VanderMolen and Parks Elementary Schools to observe teaching and leadership practices.

“The visiting students had such great questions and they were so enthusiastic,” said Dr. Adriana Burkhart, Director of Curriculum & Instruction for CNUSD.

The visiting students are currently enrolled in a one-semester teaching course at La Sierra University in Riverside as part of a study-abroad program through their Korean university.

The Corona-Norco Unified School District is the ninth-largest district in the state of California, with over 53,000 students. CNUSD is one of four finalists in the nation for the 2012 Broad Prize for Urban Education, which recognizes districts making the greatest progress in raising student achievement with scholarship money for graduating seniors.
