My name is Dorothy Tai, and I am excited to start my first year as an Instructional Assistant at Stough! I earned a Bachelor degree in Chinese Language and Literature at Yunnan University of China, and a Master degree in Business Administration at East Carolina University. I had two years’ experience as a Chinese teacher at Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language. I love working with kids and helping my students to reach their potential. I have lived in Raleigh for more than 14 years. In my spare time, I like reading, and spend time with my family.

Ms. Lihong Yu

I graduated from a Chinese teaching college and had since taught at a middle school in Beijing for 5 years before coming to the United States in 1998. I relocated to North Carolina in 2001 with my family, and started teaching again at Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language (RACL) for weekend classes until
now. Besides this RACL work, I joined Champion Learning Academy in 2008 and had taught kids ranging from preschool to 5th graders.
 
I had lived in Washington and Nevada states before and North Carolina is the place I have lived in the longest and where my home is. Over a decade long teaching career, I enjoyed the time spent with kids, enjoyed their progress in learning Chinese, and meanwhile I earned, from parents, respect and trust,
which has been valuable to me.
 
This year is the first time I serve as a TA at Stough Elementary. I will make all endeavors in assisting Ms. Ji to achieve a successful school year.
