Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Min M. Addy. You may call me Min Laoshi or Dr. Min. After growing up in China, I moved to the United States to attend the University of Florida. While in Florida I earned a PhD in Agriculture and Biological Engineering. Afterwards I moved to Minnesota and met my husband. For the last 11 years, I have led research teams and taught at the university level.
To keep up with a rapidly changing world, the education of future generations is critical for everyone. I believe it is this first level of education that will set the path for our children. As a parent of two girls attending Jie Ming, I value the education and support they received at Jie Ming very much. In 2019 I joined Jie Ming to support Principal Bobbie Johnson's effort of building an excellent school.
My goal as a teacher is to educate the next generation by developing strong critical thinking skills and sustainable living mindset along with the combination of Chinese language and wisdom. I would like to cultivate their inner strength for continuous growth and also, I would like to incorporate basic Engineering concepts into the curriculum and strengthen the STEM program in Jie Ming.
Besides work, I enjoy hiking, reading, cooking, making friends and learning new things. I hope the coming year will be a wonderful experience for both of the students and myself. Please let me know if you have any questions.
