This week we welcome two new teachers to the Primary Chinese Teaching Team – Kaye Ding and Judy Li. As mentioned in last week’s Explorer, prior to joining DC, Kaye was an IB PYP Teacher at Lutheran Academy Hong Kong and has more recently been working as a supply teacher at DC. Kaye has taken on all of Lilian Wong’s Chinese classes until the end of the academic year. Welcome Kaye.
As many would be aware, YanPing Zhao is currently pregnant and in the not too distant future will be expecting the birth of her first child. A really exciting time for YanPing and we wish her all the very best. YanPing will be on maternity leave between mid-term break and early February. We are excited to inform everyone that Judy Li has been successful in gaining the position of Chinese Teacher replacing YanPing whilst she is on maternity leave. Judy brings to the role an understanding of the school and students, as well as experience teaching in schools prior to joining DC. Congratulations Judy.
A reminder that Kate Agars, PYP Vice Principal will be supporting the Chinese team in the absence of a Head of Chinese until the end of the school year whilst we find a suitable replacement for the Head of Chinese role. We would ask that all day to day correspondence, as per normal, be directed to the Chinese teachers and Kate will handle any other matters.
