Ms. T. Liu
Hi, I'm T. Liu. This is the eighth year of my teaching career, and also my second year serving in MIMS. This year I'll be teaching math and Mandarin Chinese for all the 5th graders.
Before I became a teacher, I was a research assistant in Taiwan Normal University to help build online interactive learning software and do research on the efficacy and efficiency of online learning. After this, I became a teacher and taught for another 6 years in Taiwan. Since January 2017, I started to work in MIMS as a student teacher, and I took another job at the same time in Chinese Community Center as a Chinese instructor every Saturday. At the end of the internship, I was recruited and hired as the 5th grade teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. I personally have Bilingual and ESL teaching certificates, and I'm also certified in both core subjects(math, ELAR, science and social studies) EC-6 and 4-8.
The best thing about being a teacher is that I love to learn new skills and update my knowledge to keep up with the flow. This mindset makes me feel young and energetic. I'm sure that I would have a fun school time with my students this year!!
Besides working, I love to read and learn new skills, such as dancing, yoga and cooking. I also took courses in Korean, German and Japanese. Moreover, I have OWD license, so I've been to several beautiful diving spots around the world. I also love to go ice skaing and skiing in the winter.
