    Dear Students and Parents,

    My Education and Professional Background

    My name is Lily Chen. I moved to Arizona from Chengdu, China (home of the Giant Panda) in 2004. I have a bachelor's degree in English Literature from China West Normal University and a master's degree in Elementary Education from University of Phoenix. I started my teaching career in 1998 and have been teaching at Hamilton High School since 2010. Reading and writing have always been my passion because I believe reading enlightens our souls and writing makes us an effective communicator. I hold a National Board Certification in teaching English Language Arts (Ages 14-18+: Adolescence and Young Adulthood) and I am certified to teach Dual Enrollment English courses. 

    My Educational Philosophy

    I truly believe that teaching is a profession that requires passion, dedication, and a commitment to a life-long learning. As a teacher, I should not only hold students up to a high expectation, but also encourage and support them as much as possible. In addition to that, I believe good education is not just about getting good grades---it should be the process for students to refine their characters and recognize the "hero" in their heart.
