Ms. Allison Bass

My name is Allison Bass and I am so exited to be teaching 4th grade at Stough! I am born and raised in Raleigh and grew up in the Wake County Public School System. I am excited to be part of that school system again! I graduated from North Carolina State University and shortly after graduating I move to Southern China for two years to study Mandarin. I absolutely loved the Chinese culture and enjoyed living there, but I missed teaching so I decided to move back to the U.S. I love to travel and spend time at the beach. I am so excited to be part of Stough and I have a real passion for helping students reach their potential!

Ms. Jasmine Wilson

Hello! My name is Jasmine Wilson, as a new member of the Stough family I am very excited to be joining the 4th grade team. I am an enthusiastic first year teacher, raised in Raleigh, NC. I received an undergraduate degree in Biology from Hampton University in 2016 and then received a master’s degree in Elementary Education from North Carolina State University in 2019. During my time in graduate school I had the opportunity to spend 2 weeks in China on a study aboard trip which was an amazing experience that connects me more to the Chinese immersion community at Stough. I am also a mother of a one-year-old daughter, who is growing so fast! I love to travel and spend time with my family.

Mrs. Jenny (Jianghong) Zhao

My name is Jenny (Jianghong) Zhao. This is my second year at Stough and I am so excited to teach the Chinese portion of the 4th grade Dual Language class. I received my BA in education and Chinese literacy from the Capital Normal University in Beijing. My MA was from the University of Arizona in Special Education. This is my 9th year teaching in Mandarin immersion programs. I believe children should take ownership over their education. My role is to foster a growth mindset and spark their love of learning. 

I was born in Beijing, China. Education runs in my blood. Both of my parents were retired educators. I have one younger sister who lives in Phoenix, AZ. I am married to a wonderful man, Mr. Meng Lin. We have an adorable son, Sean, who will turn one in August.  In my free time, you can find me crawling on the floor chasing Sean, behind my camera, or digging dirt in my vegetable garden.
