简介:  I am from the ancient Chinese city of Xi’An. Prior to coming to America, I taught mechanical engineering in college for 16 years. After coming here in 1998, I have taught Chinese classes at SLMCS. In addition, I have also taught bilingual classes for English students. Of the students I have taught in these bilingual classes, 60% have gone on to jobs closely involving the Chinese language, such as working in China, working in international studies, and participation in business with China. I know that anyone who comes to this class will have ample opportunities in their future for productive application of their Chinese knowledge; anyone can find success! I welcome you all into my classroom and I am excited to embark on this unforgettably rewarding journey with each of you!

我来自中国西北古都西安.很多年前, 我作为一名下乡知青, 拉过车, 种过田, 生活艰苦, 劳动繁重, 缺水断粮是常有的事. 多亏当地纯朴的农民帮助我学会如何生活和如何生存, 使我终生难忘那段艰苦的岁月. 后来, 我进了工厂. 一九七七年国家恢复高考时, 考进了西北工业大学. 毕业后踏上了长安大学的讲台, 一站就是十六年. 其间, 我有幸作为访问学者, 来美国纽约SUNY大学深造了两年.
一九九六年,我第二次踏上了美国这片土地. 从此, 在工作之余, 寻觅着能否继续从事我所钟爱的教书职业. 一九九八年, 我梦想成真-成为现代中文学校的一名老师.在美国教中文,不仅是我的爱好,更是一种崇高的使命――向我们的后代传承中国古老的文明和灿烂的文化.使孩子们不要忘记:他/她们永远是中国人!因此,在上每一节课时,不仅充满了热情,更渗透了对祖国,学校,孩子们和家长们的责任!一晃我已在此教书十八年.学生们和家长们给了我自信和宽慰,现代中文学校给了我幸福和满足.这里是我热爱的黄土地!我要在此挥撒汗水,辛勤耕耘――这片神奇的土地能滋养万物,培育桃李满天!
