Ms. Jingsheng Yang
大家好！Welcome to our Mandarin Chinese classes.
I lived in Beijing and Shanghai, China during my childhood. This unique experience has helped me to have a strong understanding of the language, people, and cultural norms in different regions of China, which, largely, enriches my content knowledge. I graduated from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics and received my bachelor degree in Technology English. In 2006, I received my master's degree in Secondary Education in America. I have been teaching Math and Mandarin Chinese IB program in United States for more than 10 years. Now I am the instructor of Mandarin Chinese IB program at Mesa Academy for Advanced Studies. My years of teaching experiences have enabled me to work well with different types of students from different grade levels and develop effective teaching strategies to help them meet their particular needs in learning language.
I am proud of being a part of the team at the Mesa Academy.I am committed to the advancement of students in a safe and supportive learning environment and preparing students for advanced college-level courses in high school, such as the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and Advanced Placement.It is said by Confucius that "Study hard and never feel contented, and never be tired of teaching others"(学而不厌，诲而不倦). I really love working with students and support them in language learning by adopting authentic material and contextualized learning activities. I believe that all students are gifted in certain aspects and encourage learning from peers all the time. I also believe that through rigor and challenge in the classroom, students will become critical thinkers and life-long learners who make a positive impact on our world and people.
