Ms. Wen Ling (Wendy) Yang
I am the Mandarin teacher at Maxwell Academy. I have been teaching Mandarin in different schools for ten years. This is my second year at Maxwell and I very much enjoy working with our children. I believe that learning happens in a safe and pleasant environment. My students learn to read, write and speak elementary Chinese. They are introduced to Chinese culture through dance, art, calligraphy and music. Students learn by working individually at their desks and in small groups. I also use Mandarin to teach our school theme. Lessons are designed to be fun but they are also challenging. I love teaching and am grateful for the opportunity to help our children learn one of the world's most important languages.
I am happy to communicate with parents/guardians about their children's progress in my classes and appreciate the warm, trusting and friendly relationships we develop. Parents can most easily contact me by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
