1ST GRADE TEACHER / MATH AND SCIENCE
I am the first grade Teacher of Math and Science. When I first joined the CHP community, I served as a Course Instructor for Abacus Training, which was an aftercare program designed to develop mental arithmetic skills in young children. Then I moved into the role of Kindergarten Teacher.
I discovered my teaching skills when I tutored two little girls while I was still a student. My love for teaching grew along with their love for learning. It was immensely satisfying to see their wonderful progression during those two years. They transitioned from being reluctant students to becoming excited and curious about learning. Thus began my journey as a teacher.
Being a teacher has enabled me to positively impact the learning experiences of all of my students. The early grades are very important in students’ lives as they lay the foundation for future academic success. Helping my students build that solid foundation is inspirational!

The Multiple Advantages of a Multilingual CurriculumThere have been a number of studies in recent years that suggest people who speak more than one language are in fact more intelligent. An article written by the New York Times highlights that learning multiple languages could improve cognitive skills beyond those related to language, which is a considerably different viewpoint than previously thought.
