I am very excited to teach third grade in the Mandarin immersion program. I know our kids will enjoy this wonderful foreign language adventure. They will become Super Ambassadors between our different cultures. I will try my best to create a memorable experience for our students.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in English education from the Northeast Normal University and have had five years of teaching experience at a geology college. I earned my master degree in Curriculum and Teaching. I also completed the Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Education Program majoring in Special Education. I received my teacher certificates as follows: Special Education certificate, Secondary Education certificate with approved area in Chinese, and Elementary Education certificate with Structured English Immersion Endorsement, Chinese Endorsement, Library Media Specialist Endorsement, Math Endorsement, Early Childhood Endorsement, and a Computer Science Endorsement.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe the importance of education is to teach students the core of fundamental knowledge and skills, especially in the elementary level. My aspiration is to be an expert in the discipline and utilize multi-media to support students to absorb the learning content through authentic and interactive activities and experiences.
