More about my life and education...
In China I was totally immersed in Chinese language and culture, and I also studied extensively at the Zhong Yuan Language School in Taipei. While in China, I also opened an English language school and taught English to Chinese and Japanese children. Returning to America, I pursued a BA in Chinese at Brigham Young University and minored in Math. I went on to receive a MA from CU Boulder in Chinese Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. I have taught Chinese at CU Boulder, CSU, and various elementary and middle schools in Colorado, as well as private instruction from my home. I am also a certified secondary school math teacher.
