I came to Bellevue College after five years of teaching experience at other local community colleges in the area. I received my PhD from University of Washington and my research is focused on language and culture, as well as how social members use narrative to make sense of their life experience. To me, successful teaching and learning dynamics means students find their own voices to tell their own stories. I had a short career as a journalist back in Beijing, first as the lead reporter of Peking University campus news, then as a business reporter at China Daily. Besides teaching, I am also the study abroad coordinator at Bellevue College. If you are interested in study abroad programs offered through Bellevue College, please come to talk to me. Our programs are open to both domestic and international students. You can earn college credits while travel abroad!
