  • Host Family Needed

    Woodstock Elementary is pleased to welcome Confucius Classroom teachers to our school again this year!

    We are in search of a family to host one of our guest teachers. (We already have a host family for one of the guest teachers.)  Host families will be expected to provide their guest a bedroom, separate bathroom if possible, and to include them for breakfast and dinner daily and lunch on weekends. The teachers will be responsible for their own transportation to and from school and lunches on school days. The program provides the teachers monthly Tri-Met passes.

    The teachers need a place to call "home" as soon as possible. We ask families to host 3 months or longer, preferably half or entire school year, so the teachers will not need to continuously change homes.
    This is an opportunity to share your home and culture, and to create a more culturally diverse, enriching environment within a household.
    Families with children learning Mandarin could benefit immensely by having a native speaker at home.
    We understand that hosting a teacher can be a financial strain for some families who want an educational and cultural opportunity like this for their children, so PPS is offering a stipend of $500 per month to host families. We understand that this stipend is not enough to cover all expenses, but realize this is a valuable opportunity and the stipend will help families wanting to host. The stipend will be paid at the end of every month to host families, stipend can be use in anyway they like, such as covering food or utility expenses, fun activities, or weekend trips.
    If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Lihong Dai at or Selena Leininger at

    WHERE: Student ID#s can be found on district documents, like the report card and the student verification form

    WHEN: Beginning 2016-17 school year

    WHO: K-5, K-8 Portland Public School students

    WHAT: If your student does not know his/her student ID, temporary ID cards will be generated at the start of theschool year
