​​​Personal Profile


Came to the United States of America in 1987 from Kaohsiung, Taiwan, I am a native Chinese speaker fluent in Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese. I earned my master and doctor degree of education from University of Massachusetts at Amherst in the United States of America at 1989 and 1994, respectfully. Enjoy teaching and learning from students of all social, economic and ethnic background, I am growing up together with my students from all walks of life. Incorporating modern technology, digital media and clinical research into daily teaching and learning, I believe everyone can learn Chinese, English and 21st century skills at different level on one’s own pace and enjoy.


Teaching Philosophy


I love to connect Pre-K-16 & beyond Chinese programs and AP/IB Chinese curricula with advanced college, career readiness preparation into life-long teaching, learning and research. Deepen language understanding and cultural appreciation through classic and modern Chinese literature, English language arts and digital media literacy are my life-long passion. As an educator, combining creativity, cutting edge technology, social responsibility awareness and global collaboration with educators and students around the world are my dedication.
