I've been in education for 30 years. During that time, I've taught almost every grade level as well as undergraduates and graduates. I homeschool my children for 10 years until I became a charter school developer in 2010 and served as a charter school principal/leader until 2016. I enjoy working in the charter school environment. I was a part of the original committee that started EVA in 2016. I received my Educational Specialist degree in Instructional Technology in 2018. I'm excited to move to a full time position with the school and use my experience and expertise to help the EVA family grow!
Favorite Aspect of Education: I believe that kindness and sincerity are contagious. I believe that my kindness and sincerity can make children happy to learn Chinese.
Favorite Aspect of Education: "I believe that kindness and sincerity are contagious. I believe that my kindness and sincerity can make children happy to learn Chinese."
Favorite Aspect of Education: I like one sentence from Peggy O’Mara the best: “The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice.” I know how deeply teachers can influence their students. And it’s my biggest responsibility to make sure my students learn in an enjoyable, respectful, meaningful and safe environment. I also value the individuality of each child as none of them can be replaced. I enjoy teaching as well as learning from my students every day. Just as one of the ancient Chinese philosophy goes: “I learn while I teach”.
Favorite Aspect of Education: Several years ago, I heard the saying for the first time that yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift. One of the keys to making today a gift is to be cautious and innovative about education, just as W. B. Yeats said, “Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire."
Favorite Aspect of Education: In my nine years of teaching, I've learned more from my fellow teachers, my students, and their parents than I've learned from any class in my teacher-credential program. In turn, when students saw my own enthusiasm for learning, they were more inclined to learn from me. And that's how my own happiness and growth has translated into the success of my students.
Favorite Aspect of Education: Creating a good teaching atmosphere and stimulating students' desire to learn independently. Respecting students' personality and protecting their imagination and creativity.
Favorite Aspect of Education: I still remember what Helena said is “we are changing the world one child at a time .”It is my dream that to be the best Mandarin teacher who can help the children to learn Chinese in an interesting and efficient way.

Favorite Aspect of Education: I love teaching because learning! Everyday, I get to learn from my students, my coworkers, and the community. I believe that is always something to learn about, especially at a school. There's never a boring moment with teaching. I consider myself a lifelong learner, and I hope my students could become life long learners as well.
