The fun animations and quirky lyrics get students moving.

Originally from Washington D.C., I moved to Hong Kong when I was 19 to work for a charity in the Philippines. After one year in Asia I had fallen in love with the Chinese language and culture. I lived in Greater China for another 6 years in places like Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. While in Asia, I worked in education, non-profit, and finance. I double majored in Economics and Chinese with a minor in Asia Studies at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Most recently I received my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University. I love creating fun and engaging Mandarin lessons for students especially in elementary.
