China Foreign Teachers Union Starts Confucius Club In Beijing

"A teacher forever remains a student"
Thanks to Debbie, Jason, and Cody the board of directors agreed that all foreign teachers in China need to be more culturally aware and sensitive and approved CFTU sponsorship for a Confucius Club that will convene once every two weeks at Renmin University in Beijing, and Shanghai University in Shanghai. 
Perhaps one of the wisest men in the world Confucius and his teachings hold eternal value and benefit for all of mankind.  Understanding his own principals, personal history and philosophy can directly benefit foreign teachers in China who are faced with many unique problems in and out of the classroom.  We suugest all members watch this documentary on Confucius and join the new club to share your own insights and understanding of what Confucius gifted to the world...

We also share some of his greatest quotes with you here to provoke a little critical thinking and we hope that at least one day of every month, you will introduce a Confucius proverb as a class discussion topic - no matter the ages of your students.  The words of this sage are forever timeless!

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.

Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single

Don't complain about the snow on your neighbor's roof
 when your own doorstep is unclean.

Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.

Ignorance is the night of the mind, but a night without moon and star.

It is not the failure of others to appreciate your abilities that should trouble you, but rather your failure to appreciate theirs.

Virtue should be as common in the laborer as in the king.

The wise are free from perplexity, the virtuous are free from anxiety, the bold are free from fear.

To join up with the Confucius Club, either contact Debby, Jason, or Cody directly or send an email with your contact info to Conzi(at)
