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.

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.
