Mrs. Becky Chen
Dear First Grade Families,
My name is Becky Chen and I am glad to be your child’s teacher this year.
I Have been working as an elementary school mandarin teacher since 2011. I spent the past 6 years teaching in China and UK. This is my second year working in Cox Mill Elementary first grade. I absolutely love teaching, and I could see myself doing nothing else. It is amazing to watch the students grow in knowledge. I hope to be able to nurture and guide my students' progress. I also enjoy sharing my language and culture with people around the world. Therefore, I joined the Participate Chinese immersion program. I’m so excited to start a new journey of learning with your child.
It is the beginning of a great year and I am so excited to start learning about all of my new students. At the beginning of the year we will be learning lots of rules, routines, and procedures.
We will be using the workshop model for Mandarin/English reading, writing, and math during first grade. I will be actively involved in lesson planning and instruction to meet the diverse needs in the classroom. I will instruct students as a group as well as providing individual student instruction. I will try my best to make every student engaged in learning and class activities.
We are excited to have Mrs. Kerfien as our ELA teacher and Mrs. Baum as our TA this year.
I look forward to getting to know you and your families over the coming year. I hope to make it an enriching and exciting school year. Welcome again to first grade, I can’t wait to get our year started!
