Welcome to Zong Laoshi’s classroom!


Congratulations! You have graduated from kindergarten and officially become a 1stgrade student. This year will be an exciting journey full of exploration and fun! Elementary education has profound influence in a person’s life learning as kids form crucial thinking patterns, learning habits, team working spirit and the sense of achievement of themselves, and the 1stgrade is where you open the door to the brand new world, and we will do the magic together!


Now a little bit about myself. I was born and grew up in Luoyang, Henan Province, China. That is a city used to be the capital of nine dynasties through the Chinese history, and Peony is the flower of the city.  I held a bachelor’s degree of Public Administration from Jiangsu University of Science and Technology in China and a master degree of Public Affair from University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania. The professional trainings I got there shaped my open and encouraging attitude towards controversial topics, creative thinking, and thinking in a bigger picture. Between 2012 and 2016, I worked in a children’s English school and an international senior high school in China. I love to work with students and participate in their vibrant growth. I came to Jie Ming in 2016, and I fell in love with this excellent school immediately. As the second year of the 1st grade teacher, I am very grateful to work with this wonderful community!

I am very excited to work with you and your kids this year, and looking forward to knowing each of you.  You can email me anytime at xinyue.zong@spps.org, and any comments or concerns would be appreciated. Again, welcome you all on board, the ship starts sailing!
