Zhang laoshi/Ms. Zhang
你好! Hello students and families! My name is Jiamei Zhang and I am a Chinese teacher at Highland Park Middle School.This year I will be teaching 6th-8th grade Chinese Immersion, and I will also be teaching Exploring Chinese.
I originally come from China. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Chinese literature while studying at Harbin Normal University. I also earned my Master's degree in Education from Bemidji State University. In addition, I studied for my k-12 Chinese language licensure at University of Minnesota.
I started teaching Chinese in 2007 in America. I hope to create an optimal environment where students feel welcome, engaged, connected and supported. I love traveling, cooking, hiking, swimming and spending time with my husband and my daughter. I believe that one is never too old to learn something new.
