Ms. Christy Chang
I am Mrs. Christy, a Chinese teacher at Discovery Montessori Academy. I love teaching! I have had many rich bilingual teaching experiences and have taught children from the age 3 to middle school. I hold a Master’s degree in English teaching and my teaching experiences include teaching English in Taiwan for 4 years and teaching Chinese in the United States for 6 years. Parents trust me and kids really enjoy my class. My teaching philosophy focuses on providing a Chinese immersion learning environment and using a student-centered approach to guide each student to speak independently and confidently. I also like to design a variety of interactive games in the classroom to stimulate students’ motivation to learn Chinese. I hope every student I teach can enjoy learning as well as maintain their enthusiasm for learning Chinese.
