This my 11th year teaching Chinese in a private school after obtaining my Masters' degree in Chinese. I am teaching full time in middle school and high school, and sometimes teach part time in college as well. This year I am teaching 7 classes! One 6th grade class, two 8th grade classes, and four high school classes!
I am not limited to a style. I rotate between styles, so that my students can play, do group work, and learn from my nice PPT as well. I am still learning how to be more effective, even this is my 11th year teaching full time.

I like fountain pen calligraphy, brush, and Chinese painting. I hope my students can appreciate Chinese culture, so I have to keep learning, so that I can teach better. In the meantime, I tutored a little to make some extra money. I hope my lesson plans can help Chinese teachers save same time to teach their Chinese classes if we use the same textbooks. Currently, I am using Easy steps to Chinese and Shuangshuang Chinese. I do feel that preparing for the all the classes is very time consuming. I will upload the documents slowly because I have a very busy schedule. Beside my classes, I have two lovely daughters to take care of, and I have to put up a big show for Chinese New Year every year, so I am their director of dance, cross talk, skits, etc. Anyway, I enjoy being busy.
