Hello, my name is Marcus Gores! I am an ELL teacher at Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy. I work with students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. My job at Jie Ming is working with students to develop academic language proficiency. This means working with students in reading, speaking, listening and writing to expand their vocabulary and become more confident in using the English language at school.
In 2013 I graduated from UW-Milwaukee with my Bachelor’s degree in Global Studies and Business with a minor in Chinese Language and Asian Studies. I taught English as an additional language in South Korea and Taiwan for three years before moving back to the US to earn my Master’s degree in teaching at the University of Minnesota.
Outside of school, I love to play with my puppy named Yoyo, tend to my indoor garden and take walks near my home at Como Park. I am originally from Wisconsin but I’ve lived in the Twin Cities for 5 years and enjoy exploring the area. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
