Degrees and Certifications:
I am Ms. Yeh, from Taipei, Taiwan. I had 3 years experience of teaching Chinese to heritage college students in Taiwan and six years of teaching in the k-12 level in the Detroit area. I received my Master’s degree of teaching Chinese as a second language from National Taiwan Normal University and my bachelor degree in elementary education. Teaching has always been the field I have a passion for. I believe that children can learn everything while they are inspired and encouraged.
Learning a foreign language is like opening a new world. I am glad to take our children to go on our Chinese journey. My curriculum will be following the new (2015) edited foreign language standards published by American Council on The Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). Students are expected to improve their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in Chinese according to the proficiency scales, from novice low to intermediate high. We will be learning in an immersion Chinese classroom to explore different cultural experiences. We will also enjoy the excitement of having our annual Chinese festival celebrations and speech contest. Let's rock our new school year!
