Dear Kindergarten Families,

Ni Hao!!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy. My name is Jing Gan. You can call me Gan Lao Shi, which means teacher in Chinese. Our classroom mascot is monkey. I hope every kid can be curious like curious George and explore literature, Chinese, math, and the world with me. 


I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in environmental engineering at University of Science and Technology Beijing. Then I got my Ph.D degree in Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Kansas State University. Currently, I am a mother and I realize that education is one of the most important things for our kids. Therefore, I come to Jie Ming as a teacher, and this is my second year.


I hope my comprehensive background in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and extensive experience in study can help us to develop strategic and effective learning habits. It will be a big challenge for everyone this year with distance learning. But I believe together we will have a happy and sucessful school year! 


I cannot wait to start this journey with all my students and their families. Please feel free to contact me by email jing.gan@spps.org if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your support!


I look forward to having an exciting and successful school year with you!
