huān yíng lái dào zhōng wén kè ！欢迎来到中文课！Welcome to Chinese Class!
Hello 你好 （nǐ hǎo）👋 my dear friends! I am the 1st grade homeroom teacher 👩🏫 Ms. Zhang. I am from Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei province, which is 208 miles away from Beijing. I speak standard Mandarin (pǔ tōng huà), and I got my MA in language and arts in China. I have been teaching both at home and abroad for 12 years. The grades that I have taught range from K-college. This is my 9th year teaching in U.S. and my 1st year in Cox Mill with a strong 1st grade team. It is my great pleasure to work with our ELA teacher Mrs. Nicole Schlemmer.
In my teaching career I have helped thousands of American students learn the Chinese language. I have also been a chaperone for 35 high school students in a trip to China and have introduced opportunities for Americans to work in China. I feel like I am the ambassador of culture and a bridge between two counties! A variety of activities will be carried out weekly in my class. Not only will students learn the Chinese language, but they will also experience Chinese culture and will learn a little about the dramatic changes happening in China and cutting edge events around the world 🗺. I wish my class can be a window for our kids to this amazing world! 🌎
This is going to be a fantastic school year! It is my great honor to teach your children and to see their growth in my class! Every child who comes into my life will be meaningful to me, and I hope we can create unforgettable memories together!
