Welcome to Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy! I work half-time with Hamline Elementary and half-time with Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy. I have been teaching in St. Paul Public Schools since 1999. Most of my career I've been a kindergarten teacher and now I enjoy being an English Learner (or EL) teacher.
