Teaching is an integral part of my identity. As an educator, I see learning as a collaborative social process that involves everyone in the room. No matter what I teach, I cherish the experience of growing together with my students.

    • CNTO 303 Basic Cantonese II
    • CNTO 311 Basic Cantonese for Mandarin Speakers
