We are pleased to announce that I-Lin “Candy” Lee will be joining TIS as a PreK Chinese teacher. Born to a family of educators, Candy has almost a decade of teaching experience. Most recently, she worked at The Portland Chinese School, where she taught Chinese to non-native speakers for seven years. She also spent the past school year working as a PreK teacher within the Bodhi Tree Language Center’s Chinese immersion program. Candy received her BA in English Literature from Tamkang University in Taiwan, and her Teaching Certificate in Chinese as a Foreign Language from the Taipei Language Institute. When not teaching, Candy enjoys traveling, reading, learning about history, art, and music, and walking her dog.
Candy loves to teach because not only does she help children to learn and grow, but she loves to experience their pure enjoyment of life. She is looking forward to joining TIS so that she can introduce the excellence and beauty of Chinese culture, and help to broaden the multicultural understanding of our young global villagers.
