Jonathan Van Santen

Having grown up as a landlocked Canadian with a love for sailing and seafood, I am excited to live on the Yantai coast and experience life in a new culture! My wonderful wife, Rebekah, and I were married in 2015 and share a passion for coffee and adventure. I believe the joy of teaching comes through engaging students with real-life problems and enabling them to discover and create together. When I am not studying or teaching, I enjoy reading, baseball, and choral music.
