Qiong Qin 秦老师
Hello! Welcome! Ni hao! Huan ying! (That’s how to say hello and welcome in Mandarin!)
Welcome to Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion first grade! My name is Qiong Qin, and I am going to be your child’s first grade teacher this year! I am so excited that your child is going to be in my class!!
Let me first start by sharing some information about myself professionally and personally. I grew up in China. I was an experienced accounting professional in China for 6 years. I received my Master of Accountancy from The Carlson School of Management of The University of Minnesota in 2008. Why I become a teacher? Because I fell in love with our students while I walked into the classroom as a volunteer, and I can never walk away from them, so I stayed until today. Time is passing so quickly that I got my Master of Art in Teaching in 2017 and I had been teaching first grade for nine years already. I love this job. Jie Ming and our students always touch my heart!!!
First grade is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. I am looking forward to a very exciting and productive year working with your child. I will strive each day to make learning a fun and enriching process for your child. However, I need your help in making this year successful as it can be! I believe that you and I are a team working together to help your child develop emotionally and academically. You are the most important people and teachers in your child’s life. I know if we work together and communicate, your child will have a very successful year! I am eager to hear your questions, comments, concerns, and celebration.
