Kara is a native of China. She holds a Master's Degree in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages from Sichuan University, Bachelor's Degree in English Education from Sichuan Normal University and a Certificate in Making the PYP Happen in the Classroom Cat 1 from IBO.
Kara's undergraduate degree in English has given her an invaluable experience in enabling her to speak English fluently and without much stress in an international environment.
She believes that a Chinese teacher in an international school needs to break through the traditional Chinese teaching mode and make creative use of advanced teaching methodologies to teach Chinese and cultivate international-mindedness.
Her EAL and Chinese (as a native language and foreign language) teaching experience helps her to have a better understanding of these two languages and cultures, which enables her to guide her students to explore Chinese language and Chinese culture with international thinking.
Kara is a big fan of painting and calligraphy and loves spicy food!
