Nin hao and Kia ora everyone. I began teaching mandarin Chinese at CPDS in 2016. I have been a part of the CPDS community since 1996 when my first child started school. All three of my children, Nancy, Mason and Elise attended and enjoyed CPDS. I recall fond memories of being a parent helper at various school activities and trips. I graduated from University both in my home country China and also at AUT University. I have worked full time for the past nine years before starting to teach at CPDS. I now enjoy using my bilingual language skills to support the school and community by teaching Chinese. I love working with children and introducing them to the Chinese language and culture. In my spare time I enjoy gardening and have a thriving vegetable patch at home.
