Jenny will lead our Mandarin program for the 2019-20 academic year.
She is an expert educator, having experience with the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) proficiency bands, the College Board, the Confucius Institute, and schools all across the country. Jenny joins us from The Buckley School. While at Buckley, Jenny was an essential component in growing the Mandarin program. During her tenure, the program more than tripled in size and expanded its course offerings. She is eager to contribute to the strengthening our Mandarin program by fostering authentic experiences in language, augmenting the cohesion of the middle school and upper school program and by sharing her joy of learning within the context of cross-cultural exchange. Jenny has a background in music and journalism, which she hopes to apply in the teaching of the department’s concentration classes. Jenny received her B.A. from the China Conservatory in Beijing, China.
