TIS is pleased to announce that Ju-Ya Cheng will be our new LowK teacher in the Chinese track. She has over a decade’s worth of experience and most recently was a Mandarin immersion Kindergarten teacher at the Hope Chinese Charter School in Beaverton. Ju-Ya has a BA in Chinese Language and Literature Education from the National Taipei Teachers College and a Master’s Degree in Visual Art Education from the National Pingtung Teachers College, both located in Taiwan. She has received Certificates in Elementary School Teaching, Mandarin Teaching, and Overseas Cultural and Traditional Arts Teacher Training, all in Taiwan. When not teaching, Ju-Ya enjoys cooking and baking for her family and friends. Producing great food in her kitchen always gives her happiness.
Ju-Ya is very excited to have the opportunity to get to know the TIS staff, students, and families. She is looking forward to working with teachers from cultures and other language tracks, as she thinks it will be mutually beneficial for the development of teaching skills.
