International Schools Consortium

International Schools Consortium (iSC) is a nonprofit organization that, since 1986, has offered excellent academic programs to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of students. iSC has six schools in China — in Chengdu, Qingdao, Wuhan, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Yantai — one school in the UAE, and helps to support various other educational initiatives globally. iSC is a multi-school program, enabling students and teachers to participate in system-wide programs where they can interact with others outside of their immediate school. Students compete in basketball, volleyball and soccer tournaments, as well as music and choral festivals, and Model United Nations (MUN) conventions.

I had a wonderful childhood in the beautiful town of Yantai. I have loved the arts since I was little. In my early twenties, I learned many aspects of film and drama while I was in college. Though I don’t teach art, what I learned still helps a lot during teaching. After I graduated from college, I got a chance to work as an English course consultant, which allowed me to be exposured to English. I had an opportunity to spend a couple of years in America, and those experiences are precious to me. While I was in America, I taught American children Chinese, through which I gained teaching experience and learned about education. Through my teaching experience, I learned how valuable and important teachers are as they impact the lives of students. I learned pedagogics and educational psychology by myself after I came back to China where I obtained a teaching certificate. I hope I can continue life-long learning and become better at teaching. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, reading, and having a short trip with my family.
