Mrs. Jenny Zhao, Magnet Coordinator

My name is Jenny (Jianghong) Zhao, and I'm entering my fourth year at Stough with great enthusiasm as I embrace my new role as a Magnet Coordinator. 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 11th year teaching in a Mandarin immersion program. I enjoy nurturing young intellects and believe that there's nothing quite as rewarding as fostering bilingualism and fostering an appreciation for the rich tapestry of diverse cultures. Stough offers me an ideal platform to engage with students from various backgrounds and prepare them for a future in our global society.

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 turns four in August. In my free time, you can find me chasing Sean in a playground, behind my camera or a book, or digging dirt in my garden.
