|Position:||5th Grade Mandarin DLI|
Hello and welcome to the Fifth Grade Dual Language Immersion Program! I am ecstatic to be part of this incredible program and to help you raise global citizens of the world! I lived in Taipei, Taiwan for four years and am especially excited to help open the world of Chinese to your children. We are one big team of parents, Chinese and English teachers, administrators, and students, so please reach out so we can all help your child achieve their potential!
My Education and Professional Background
I received my BA in 2006 from the University of Northern Colorado in Elementary Education with a concentration in Spanish and teaching language learners. My MA is from the Arizona State University in Bilingual Education. I have taught everything from Pre-K to adults but most of my time has been spent in second and third grade. I have been working with students acquiring a new language for 10 years.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe it is my job to motivate your child to reach their full potential and to inspire them to reach beyond what they thought possible. I am particularly passionate about cultural learning and finding the unique strengths within each and every person.
