Hello 你好!Welcome to the Mandarin World !This is my first year teaching Mandarin at Our Lady Of Lourdes. I am very excited to work with your kids and look forward to enhancing every student's passion for learning Mandarin and Chinese culture. Teaching Mandarin is my paasion. I taught Mandarin to foreign students in Shanghai for few years until my whole family relocated back to Green Bay in 2015. Since then I have taught some students Mandarin in privte lesson. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband and I have two children Stephen and Johnny . Stephen is a freshmen student in University of Minnesota Twin city. Johnny is in 8th Grade. I love teaching , camping, writing and Chinese painting. Learning Mandarin is not easy, but with all the hard work from each student and all the support from parents and school, Learning Mandarin is easy and fun.
