"John was an excellent leader and teacher for the Sycamore Community School District. He exemplified professionalism during his tenure. You would be fortunate to have the opportunity to work with and be taught by John Strain”

 Tim Carlson, Principal Sycamore High School 


"...It’s' no surprise how you grew to be the educational professional you are along with the spirit of community service and bringing out the best in young people as they learn about the world we all call home.   There is nothing more important to the future of the world than education and true stewardship of the great natural and human resources with which we are all blessed.  Thanks John for extending yourself in the noble effort to have young people be the best that they can be for themselves and for all of us too."   

Ken Mundy - Mayor of Sycamore, Illinois USA

Dear Mr. John:
Thanks for your coming and support last night.
I'm really happy to meet you in Qianhua.
You are my good teacher and partner.
All of students in 6&5 grade become more interested in learning English because your passion aroused their motivation and brought lots of fun to them.
They really have good memory from you-Teacher John.
Thanks a lot.
 Mr. LEE - Qianhua Elementary Teacher
