Dear 1st Grade Families,

 My name is Hongying Sha. I am from Jiangsu China. I worked at Great Wall Securities as an investment manager prior to coming to the US. I will be your new 1st grade teacher. I am excited about this new journey with you. I have worked as a Chinese teacher for 6 years in Yucai Chinese School at Plymouth, Minnesota. I also worked as a teaching assistant in Xinxing Academy in Hopkins school district.

I am currently a graduate student in Hamline University of Education and Human Development. I am very confident that we will have an exciting year of learning with your children.

In my classroom, I will carefully plan for the lessons. I will work with the students through the whole class, small groups and one on one instruction. I will connect the learning to the real-world application and create a positive classroom environment. I believe the love of learning to be the key to success. I want every student to feel safe, cared about and excited when they come to school each day. This new year promises to be filled with lots of learning, lots of discovery and lots of fun! I am looking forward to every minute of it.
