I'm a Canadian Chinese who grew up in Canada in a place called Oakville, Ontario. I was partly raised by Canadian guardians. I have been working in Shanghai for over five years. During that time I have taught a wide range of subjects such as ESL, Literature, History and Geography. I have taught adult, Grade 12, and Jr High students. Now I'm currently in Singapore where I'm getting my Masters of Education at the National Institute of Education.
