My name is Mia Zhang and this is my second year as a teacher's assistant at Stough. I am originally from Tianjin, China. After graduating from university in Tianjin, I moved to Seoul, South Korea in 2009. After studying Korean for 2 years I started teaching Chinese and English to children and adults for 6 years, including 2 years teaching at a Canadian International School. In 2017 my family moved to Raleigh. We love Raleigh and I am so happy to be part of the Stough family. Seeing the students learn and grow in this unique and positive environment fills me with love. In my free time, I also teach at CCS Chinese weekend school. As a teacher, I believe that every student can succeed with the right support and instruction.
