I have a Bachelor's degree in English Education & Master's degree in Translation. I have 3 years experience teaching English immersion classes in China. This is my 3rd year at Stough. I taught kindergarten for the first year and moved to first grade in my second year. I love working with kids and really enjoy my time teaching in the US. I want kids to have a great time at school, realize their potential, and to be successful in the future. In my free time, I love traveling. I have been to many cities in China and the US too.

I graduated from Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Masters degree in teaching in 2012. I've taught kindergarten and lower elementary from 1st grade to third grade as a certified teacher in Hong Kong. Besides helping children reach their full academic potential in a competitive society, I want to increase my students' compassion and awareness to better their community and create a dynamic environment for lifelong learning. I love traveling and am curious to explore the hidden corners of the world. I have travelled to 22 out of 48 countries in Asia and can't wait to see what USA life has to offer. I'm looking forward to an amazing year at Stough!
