I was born and grew up in Hangzhou, China. I graduated from Beijing International Studies University with a B.A. in English and from Rhode Island College with double M.Ed. in Teaching English as a Second Language and Elementary School Administration. I've been teaching at various levels ranging from college to 3rd grade. I care passionately about getting my students ready for college or career.
The world has been changing rapidly. As a result, we must change the way we educate our children. With technology, it is possible to personalize learning. Students are able to learn any subject on her level at her pace anywhere any time. They can also watch videos and learn from the best teachers in the world without even getting out of their bedroom.
Thinking critically, being creative, and problem solving are probably the MOST important skills our children will need in order to do well when they step into the real world in the near future.
